Oklahomans wanting to get the COVID-19 vaccine can now pre-register to get an appointment through an online portal.
The site went live to the public Wednesday and the Oklahoma State Health Department said as of 5 p.m. nearly 100,000 Oklahomans had successfully registered.
The website to go to is vaccinate.oklahoma.gov. From there, fill out your information which should just take a few minutes.
The state said anyone who goes through the process will receive an email confirming registration and will be notified when they are eligible to schedule an appointment, based on the state’s vaccine phases.
State Health Department Deputy Commissioner Keith Reed emphasizes registration does not guarantee someone an appointment, it simply puts them in the system.
"They are going to be notified when they are eligible to go back into this portal and look for an appointment available near them,” Reed said.
Thursday morning at 8:00 a.m., the opportunity to schedule an appointment will open up for those who have pre-registered.
The Tulsa Health Department said appointments for those 65 and older will begin next Monday, January 11.
