Nurses administer COVID-19 vaccines at the Embassy Suites Conference Center. 

The Oklahoma State Department of Health announced vaccinations will be available to Oklahomans eligible for Phase 3 of the state vaccine distribution plan at a Monday press conference.

According to OSDH Commissioner of Health Keith Reed, individuals who are eligible for Phase 3 vaccination will be notified through the vaccine portal early tomorrow morning.

"This is the best way we have to stop COVID-19 in individual communities in the state," Reed said.

According to the the OSDH vaccination plan, Phase 3 includes "teachers, staff and residents" in educational settings not included in Phase 2's K-12 population, like college campuses.
