Oklahoma State Commissioner of Health Dr. Lance Frye announced the new vaccine scheduling app will be available as early as January 7th.
Each week, the state is receiving 30,000 to 40,000 doses, Frye said. The state health department is creating "Point of Dispensing Sites" (PODS) to increase access point for vaccines across Oklahoma.
Leaders also said all COVID-19 vaccines they have are currently accounted for at this time.
Deputy Commissioner Keith Reed said the state health department has to go one week at a time because the distribution is based on how many doses the department is receiving.
