Most common issues with scheduling a vaccine appointment

Posted at 7:04 PM, Jan 14, 2021

TULSA, Okla. — Issues with the state’s vaccine portal are frustrating priority groups across Green Country.

Most residents are unable to either find an appointment or complete the booking process.

2 Works For You is hearing from viewers that people continue to struggle with the portal’s interface. Other concerns revolve around access of computers for seniors and the lack of tech-skills to complete the application.

Meanwhile, others have been fortunate enough to have their children help register them. But, for those with no one else to turn to, Life Senior Services is helping people over 65 register on the state’s online portal.

The agency has already fielded hundreds of calls over the past two weeks. Still, agency staff want to remind people they have no control over booking an appointment, and they can only help them register.

“We’re here to help people schedule through the State Department of Health portal. We also put things on our Facebook page if we hear about vaccination clinics in outlining areas,” executive director Eileen Bradshaw said. “Unfortunately, what we can’t do is give someone an appointment because we don’t have the vaccine.”

Bradshaw said Life Senior Services will also help clients create an email address so they can register online. If you or someone you know needs help registering on the state’s vaccine portal, you can reach out to Life Senior Services.
