OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma revenue collections for calendar year 2020 declined by 3.8% as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the state. State Treasurer Randy McDaniel said today the state collected nearly $13.2 billion in taxes and fees for the year, $520.9 million less than during calendar year 2019. “The state’s economy declined in 2020," McDaniel said in a statement. "Hopefully, we will see improvement in the months ahead as the (coronavirus) vaccine becomes widely available.” December collections of $1.16 billion were 0.4% below December 2019, but an improvement from the 2% decline in year-to-year numbers reported in November.

The department launched the COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal to notify Oklahomans when they’re eligible to receive the vaccine and provide more information on how to schedule an appointment. Oklahomans can visit this portal at vaccinate.oklahoma.gov, but appointment scheduling will not be available until Thursday. Health officials said currently only Oklahomans who are 65 and older, health care workers and/or first responders will be able to schedule appointments.
