OSDH: COVID-19 vaccine online scheduler portal now available for pre-registration – KOCO Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma State Department of Health announced Wednesday that its COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal is now available for pre-registration. Earlier this week, the department announced the launch of an online COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal on Thursday to notify Oklahomans when they’re eligible to receive the vaccine and provide more information on how to schedule an appointment. As of Wednesday, Oklahomans can visit this portal at vaccinate.oklahoma.gov, but appointment scheduling will not be available until Thursday, officials said. However, pre-registration is open for all Oklahomans to enter their personal information to determine their eligibility to receive the vaccine within Oklahoma’s priority phase plan and receive notifications when the vaccine is available to them.You can access the online portal here.Health officials said beginning Thursday, only Oklahomans who are 65 and older, health care workers and/or first responders will be able to schedule appointments. As the state advances in its phased approach to vaccine distribution, the system will notify and allow individuals in additional priority groups and phases the opportunity to schedule their appointment. Officials said eligibility also doesn’t mean that people will be able to receive an appointment right away. Appointment availability will depend on vaccine supply in each county, which changes from week to week as the state receives more vaccine doses from the federal government.For Oklahomans who are not currently eligible to receive the vaccine, or if there are no appointments available in their area based on vaccine supply, registering in advance will ensure they are notified by email when their appointment is available, according to the health department. Officials said there is no list for Oklahomans to be added to in order to be included in the state’s phased approach to vaccine distribution. The vaccine scheduler portal is a tool to help notify eligible Oklahomans when and where they can receive the vaccine when an appointment is available to them. KOCO 5’s Christine Stanwood said she was able to fill out a questionnaire about her age, profession and health history. After giving personal information and insurance, she received an email, which appeared to be an automated response, from health.ok.gov, explaining that she was registered to receive the vaccine under a certain phase.Moving forward, officials said appointment availability will depend on how much of the vaccine the state receives week to week.The email response stated they are currently administering the vaccine to the residents who have been assigned to an earlier group and that they will send an email notification with information on how to schedule your vaccination as soon as your group becomes active.
