LV)--The Health Department’s COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be moving from Oakwood Mall to the Garfield County Health Department on Monday. The mall’s clinic, which the Health Department has been utilizing since January, has seen a decrease in vaccination demand as Phase 4 opened Monday and as more Oklahomans have been vaccinated, prompting the move to the department. All Oklahomans who are 16 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Maggie Jackson, regional director of community engagement and planning for Oklahoma State Department of Health, said unless there is a need at some point for a large event in the future, officials can maintain at the Health Department from this point forward. Vaccinations at the Health Department next week will continue to be from 8 a.m. to noon, Jackson said. Appointments can be made using the vaccination portal, and for help registering for an appointment, people can call 211 or the Health Department at (580) 233-0650. The Health Department is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

YW)--Green yard waste collection in Enid will transition to the spring and summer schedule beginning April 5. Residents are reminded to place the green polycart container containing yard waste at the curb, and at least four feet away from other containers, parked vehicles, street lampposts, trees, mailboxes and other obstructions, no later than 7:30 a.m. on Mondays. The city-issued green polycarts are used for yard waste such as leaves, twigs and grass. Because yard waste is placed in a different field for composting, the green polycarts will not be emptied if they contain household trash. Green polycarts may be purchased for a one-time fee of $60, which will be charged to the resident’s water bill after they receive the container. Those who wish to obtain a polycart or an additional polycart can contact Solid Waste Services at (580) 616-7300. For additional information on the guidelines, go to www.Enid.org/yardwaste.
