“There is light at the end of the tunnel,” said Reed. “But there is still work to be done and this vaccination program is one of the key things that has to take place. And we’re not there yet. We are making good progress, but yeah I, we, I do have concerns that people are going to relax too soon.”

The Oklahoma City-County Health Department has launched VaxOKC.com, a new website to schedule local COVID-19 vaccine appointments for Oklahoma County residents.

Eligible customers can schedule a vaccine appointment via the Walmart and Sam’s Club websites once appointments are available.
