OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma’s deputy health commissioner says the next phase of people eligible for the coronavirus vaccine will be able to schedule vaccinations starting next week.

Keith Reed said on Tuesday that the group includes people in prisons and at homeless shelters in addition to city, county, and state officials as well as public health staff that support front-line health care workers.

Reed said nearly 1.2 million Oklahomans have received at least one vaccination and more than 426,000 are fully vaccinated.

The state health department reports a total of 427,558 virus cases and 7,202 deaths due to COVID-19 since the pandemic began.
