OKLAHOMA CITY -

 The State Department of Health announced the launch of an online registration portal on Tuesday.

Officials say the portal will help Oklahomans determine when they are eligible to receive the vaccine and how to schedule an appointment when it is their turn.

“This is an exciting step, as we now have the opportunity to vaccinate larger priority groups in Oklahoma,” said Dr. Lance Frye, State Commissioner of Health. “We know Oklahomans are eager to find out when and where they can get the vaccine, and we’re thankful for their patience as our team quickly works to develop innovative solutions. We’re hopeful that the launch of this portal will ease confusion and create a seamless experience for all Oklahomans.”

The registration portal will be functional Thursday, Jan. 7, but OSDH says appointment availability will be dependent on vaccine supply in each county.

OSDH also recently announced that they will be opening vaccination “P.O.D.S.” or Points of Dispensing Sites across the state where Oklahomans can receive the vaccine safely in the coming weeks. Individuals can look to the OSDH website for official COVID-19 related information. 

Appointment availability is dependent on vaccine supply in each county.
