The Oklahoma State Health Department said any Oklahoman 16 and older will be eligible to schedule an appointment for the vaccine. 

They said more than one million Oklahomans have received at least the first dose of the vaccine.

Keith Reed is the Deputy Health Commissioner and said around 27% of the state has been fully vaccinated. He said it's still difficult to know when we could see herd immunity in the state. 

"Typically you're going to have difficulty getting that number and part of that is because there is a little bit of unknown factors as far as those that have some natural immunity out there that have been exposed and maybe asymptomatically contracted COVID-19 that could contribute to us reaching herd immunity a little quicker," said Reed.

If you want your 16 or 17 year old to be vaccinated, you will need to make sure to sign up for the Pfizer vaccine through the state's website.
