OKLAHOMA (AP) — The Chickasaw Nation is now offering the coronavirus vaccine to all Oklahoma residents. The tribe announced on Saturday that vaccinations are available by appointment at its drive-thru site in Ada or at its health clinics in Purcell, Ardmore, or Tishomingo.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health is offering vaccinations to people in three of the state’s four-phase plan, recently adding child care workers, higher and Career Tech education, and critical business workers to those eligible.
The health department reports 431,991 total virus cases since the onset of the pandemic and 7,486 deaths due to COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus.
