OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma health officials say more than 1 million doses of coronavirus vaccine have been administered in the state.

Deputy Health Commissioner Keith Reed announced the milestone on Friday. He says data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on federal doses administered pushed Oklahoma past the 1 million mark. He also says federal doses distributed through the Indian Health Service and the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs weren’t previously included in the state’s vaccination count.

According to CDC data, Oklahoma ranks 11th in the nation with 16.5% of the population having received at least one dose.
