Local Health Departments in Oklahoma are making COVID-19 vaccination a top priority to protect community health.

“We are excited to provide the vaccine to community members,” Terri Salisbury, Regional Administrative Director for Oklahoma State Department of Health District 1, said. “We urge all Oklahomans who are eligible to get the vaccine as soon as it is available to them. Our staff is working diligently to provide the vaccine to all individuals who are eligible. While individuals need to remain diligent in their COVID precautions, the vaccine is viewed as light at the end of the tunnel.”

Ongoing vaccination events will be held in all District One counties beginning the first week of January. Residents and staff in long-term care facilities will receive vaccination through contracts with CVS or Walgreen’s, or from local health departments.

“We definitely have a sense of urgency based on what our medical partners are seeing in the hospitals due to this virus.” Salisbury said. “Please help our healthcare system by continuing to wear a mask, wash your hands and watch your distance as these are still key components of minimizing the spread of COVID at this time.”
