Hundreds of nursing and pharmacy students at the University of Oklahoma will take part in administering the COVID-19 vaccine to Oklahomans as the rollout begins.

Members of the OU faculty said that they expect these students to be part of every phase of the rollout process.

Vaccines are already apart of the student's education and according to one OU professor, there has been great interest from students at the university.

Theresa Murphy, a professor from the OU College of Nursing, said that when the opportunity was presented to students the schedule filled in less than half an hour.

"We actually have three campuses, our Oklahoma City campus our Lawton campus and our Tulsa campus and we are making plans for students on all those campuses to be apart of the vaccine administration,” said Murphy.

Currently, Oklahoma is only in phase one of the state’s rollout process.
