The state health department's portal to register for a COVID-19 vaccine is up and running online.

When users arrive at the portal home screen, there is a rundown of questions each person is expected to answer. The information helps determine where they fall in the vaccination order. 

Once the questionnaire is begun, users will answer several questions including if you're a long-term care resident or worker, or if you're a health care worker on the front line.

The next page of questions includes if the person is 65-years-old or older, a first responder, a teacher, or if you have comorbidities.

Proceeding to the next page, users will see questions about age, and if they are a critical infrastructure worker at an essential business or industry.

The next page includes questions about allergies, a history of medical conditions, and pregnancy.

The last page of questions includes whether the person tested positive for COVID-19 or received a vaccine yet.

Finally, each user provides contact and insurance information.

Once the questionnaire is completed, the user receives a message showing which phase they are eligible.

The message promises to contact the user when they're eligible with information on how to schedule an appointment to get the vaccine.

The Oklahoma City County Health Department hopes people will use the state's site moving forward but are training hotline workers to provide help where it's needed.
