Oklahoma COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Program 

The Oklahoma State Department of Health is looking for physicians and other providers to become part of its Pandemic Provider Program, which will help in the administration of the vaccines as they become available to more Oklahomans. To learn more about the phased release of the vaccine and to sign up to be a vaccine provider for your patients, visit the OSDH's website. If you would like to receive the vaccination for yourself and your staff, we recommend you call your local health department or hospital to inquire about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
