Next high risk priority groups in Phase 2 can get COVID-19 vaccine

Starting today, the Oklahoma State Department of Health is starting to vaccinate the next high risk priority groups outlined in phase 2.

This includes:

  • Oklahomans under 65 with comorbidities.
  • Teachers and Staff in Pre-K-12 schools and educational settings.

Comorbid conditions outlined in the plan include but are not limited to hypertension, obesity, cardiovascular disease, Down syndrome, diabetes mellitus, chronic lung, liver or renal disease, cancers and those who are at high risk of mortality and severe morbidity resulting from a COVID infection.

The Kay County Health Department said in a recent Facebook update that they have chosen an overlapping approach to Oklahoma’s COVID vaccination plan. Though they’re moving forward with providing the vaccine to Pre-K-12 teachers and staff as well as Oklahomans with comorbidities, the vaccine is still available to those included in earlier phases, such as healthcare workers, people 65+ and LTC staff.

Please register on the portal at Vaccine.Oklahoma.gov to be notified when you eligible to book an appointment.
