Oklahoma’s COVID Vaccination Protocol Should Be the National Standard
Last week the Comanche County Health Department held one of it's first COVID-19 vaccination clinics at the Great Plains Coliseum in Lawton and at the Community Center in Altus. Both locations provided vaccinations to those 65 years of age or older for Phase 2 of the vaccine rollout in the state and the Nation. Another vaccination clinic will be scheduled as soon as more vaccine becomes available.
The Comanche County Health Department did an amazing job of organizing and running the clinics. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone involved for all your hard work, efforts and planning. I've heard from several friends and family members who were eligible for the vaccine and went to the clinics. All of them complimented and commented on just how organized, efficient and well run it was.
Oklahoma, especially S.W. Oklahoma has done a great job with rolling out the vaccine and organizing mobile sites and clinics where it can be administered. More than one person said that Oklahoma should be the standard the entire Nation uses when it comes to COVID vaccine protocols and clinics. That's a HUGE compliment to our local health department and the Oklahoma State Department of Health.
Not only were the clinics well run, the state created a vaccination portal. A scheduling tool to help Oklahomans determine when they are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and help them schedule an appointment when it is their turn. This will be the fastest and easiest way to get in line, request a vaccination and stay up to date with the various rollout phases.
