    • Thursday, Friday: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you are signed up for one of tomorrow’s appointments, you should bring your ID that also includes your date of birth to prove your eligibility.  

You’ll also need to arrive to your appointment on time.  

“Arrive as close as you can to your appointment time because we’ve got a lot of people to get in and out and if you arrive too early, you’re gonna have to stand in line,” said Molly Fleming, the Public Information Officer for the Oklahoma City-County Health Department.  

You will also receive a QR Code when you register for your appointment. Fleming says if possible, print the code to bring with you. If you aren’t able to print it out, you will still be able to check in.  

You’ll also need to remember COVID-19 protocols once you arrive.  

“We don’t want people standing together. People naturally stand a little closer together when they’re in line and we need people standing 6 feet apart,” said Fleming.

Fleming says if you weren’t able to schedule an appointment, there will be more opportunities for getting vaccinated.

“We are ready to do this every week until we get that herd immunity because we need people to get vaccinated,” said Fleming.  

The state wants to remind Oklahomans that it is their responsibility to continue to check the portal for available appointments.

If you receive your first dose, it is also your responsibility to find another appointment to schedule for your second dose.
