The Oklahoma State Department of Health announced that beginning Monday, COVID-19 vaccines will become available to the next phase of eligible recipients. This includes those remaining in Phase 2 of the state's vaccine priority framework. This newly eligible group includes a variety of elected officials, including school board members.
More vaccination information is available on the State Health Department website. For school board members who want to be vaccinated, you have a variety of options to consider for obtaining a vaccination appointment:
- State vaccination portal.
- Register at vaccinate.oklahoma.gov. Read the questions carefully and answer yes to the question that asks: "Are you a public health worker supporting front line efforts; or a senior state, county, or city government leader or elected official?"
- If you have already registered in the portal but did not answer yes to this question, you may re-register by using a different email address or changing some other aspect of your registration (adding, changing or leaving blank the middle name/initial field or switching your first/middle name).
- You will receive a link via email on Monday allowing you to schedule an appointment through the portal.
