Norman Regional Health System is not able to administer the vaccine to the public or patients at this time. Currently, the health system is vaccinating members of our staff who are in Phase 1 and 2 with doses provided to us by the Oklahoma State Department of Health. The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is the provider and distributor of the COVID-19 vaccine.
For more information about vaccine distribution, visit oklahoma.gov/COVID19 or call 2-1-1. In addition, for updates on Oklahoma’s vaccine distribution progress, follow OSDH on social media:
- On Facebook: facebook.com/OklahomaHealth
- On Twitter and Instagram: @HealthyOklahoma
To provide increased access to the COVID-19 vaccine for Oklahomans, OSDH is initiating vaccination “PODS” or Points of Dispensing Sites across the state where individuals who are set to begin receiving the vaccine can do so safely in the coming weeks.
Initial groups that will receive the vaccine in PODS include first responders and healthcare workers outside of hospital settings, some of whom have already begun receiving their vaccines. Oklahomans who are 65 and older will also be able to receive the vaccine at PODS locations in the coming weeks. More information about vaccine availability to the 65 and older population will become available as the state receives further information regarding ongoing vaccine supply.
PODS locations are flexible and may be raised in communal locations such as schools, community centers and fairgrounds all across the state.
At this time Norman Regional Health System will not be administering the COVID vaccine to the public or patients through our NRHS clinics. Please check our website and social media for updates as this is an evolving situation.
