VP)--The Oklahoma State Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal is now available for pre-registration. 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. As the state advances in its phased approach to vaccine distribution, the system will notify and allow individuals in additional priority groups and phases the opportunity to schedule their appointment.
