UNDATED -- A new report shows Oklahomans continue to smoke more, exercise less and die younger than the rest of the country.

Oklahoma got a "D" or an "F" in 24 of 33 health categories.

The report also showed fewer than one in four Oklahoma adults smoke. That's a historic low.

And Oklahoma is in the top half of the country when it comes to child immunization rates.

Also, more Oklahomans are getting health insurance thanks to Insure Oklahoma.

On Wednesday Governor Henry signed a bill strengthening the program, where employers and employees pay a small portion of premiums and the state pays the rest.

Insure Oklahoma is sponsored in part by the News on 6's parent company, Griffin Communications.
