COVID-19 Vaccines Now Available At PODS Throughout Oklahoma
January 18, 2021 at 18:24
The COVID-19 vaccine is now available at designated Points Of Distribution (PODs) throughout the city of Oklahoma. The city is now moving into phase two of the distribution effort.
Phase 2 of the distribution was explained in an ABC 5 KOCO article from December 30th. The article states that, “Oklahoma State Department of Health officials said they’re finalizing plans for how they’ll distribute the COVID-19 vaccine when it is available for some members of the public in the next few weeks. The department will have what they’re calling vaccine pods scattered across the state. Those pods could be places such as schools, community centers and, possibly, the state fairgrounds. Authorities need a lot of space to make this happen. In the next few weeks, those pods will open for people who are 65 and older, first responders and health care workers outside the hospital setting.”
Accordingly, on New Year’s Eve, First Responders and Healthcare Workers in Oklahoma were given the opportunity to sign up and get their shots at two locations in the city. This is detailed in a post by Fox 25 from December 30th, which states that, “Healthcare workers and First Responders are able to sign up now to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at two Oklahoma locations. Two sites will be set up on Thursday December 31, 2020 in Enid and Yukon. Both sites say the events are short notice, but sign-up for the events ends on December 30, at 5:00 PM.”
One can agree that, with the winter cold and other trials the city has been going through, the news of the arrival of the vaccine is quite welcome. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to expand our vaccine distribution efforts in Oklahoma,” said Dr. Lance Frye, Oklahoma State Commissioner of Health. He added that, “PODS will help us provide more efficient access points as we open up the vaccine to larger populations as we continue to gradually move into phase 2 priority groups and beyond.”
Oklahomans who are 65 and older will also be able to receive the vaccine at PODS locations within the coming weeks, according to health officials. PODS locations are flexible and may be established in communal locations such as schools, community centers and fairgrounds all across the state. Staffing and logistics will be coordinated with local partners, in an effort that reflects a community approach to assisting neighbors in need. Keith Reed, the Deputy Commissioner for the State Department of Health, said that, “Our vaccine plan remains fluid and has helped us efficiently distribute the vaccine across Oklahoma.” He also stated that, “Raising these PODS across the state will keep our vaccine supply moving into the arms of Oklahomans that need it most. It will allow us to progress through our priority groups as planned and vaccinate as many Oklahomans as we can.”
