SITUATION UPDATE: COVID-19

The Oklahoma State Department of Health would like to notify you that we will not be reporting data on New Years Day, Jan. 1st, out of respect for our personnel who have worked tirelessly throughout the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to allow these employees to enjoy the holiday with family. The reporting cadence over the next few weeks is outlined here.

OSDH is initiating vaccination “PODS” (Points of Dispensing Sites) across the state where individuals who are set to begin receiving the vaccine can do so safely. Initial groups to receive the vaccine in PODS include first responders and health care workers outside of hospital settings. Oklahomans who are 65 and older will also be able to receive the vaccine at PODS locations, to be announced in the coming weeks.
