OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma health officials say that while the state has taken an important step with the start of vaccinations to combat the coronavirus pandemic, there is still “a long road ahead of us.”

Oklahoma has received all of its initial allotment of 39,975 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to officials. More than 2,200 individuals, mostly front-line health care workers, have been vaccinated.

Oklahoma’s Republican U.S. senators, Jim Inhofe and James Lankford, announced on Friday that they had received the vaccine.
