OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD) says more than 1 million doses of COVID-19 have been administered in Oklahoma County.
“The agency is grateful to the many partners who have helped the County of Oklahoma achieve this important milestone,” OCCHD said. “The county continues to lead the state in our vaccination rates.”
As of November 30, more than 70% of Oklahoma County residents 12 years of age and older were fully immunized.
“This is a tremendous community partnership to strengthen the resilience of our community,” said Dr. Patrick McGough, OCCHD CEO. “We are incredibly grateful to the countless organizations that have partnered with us to make this achievement possible.”
OCCHD has been working with churches, health systems, cultural centers, school districts, universities and colleges, private and government organizations to organize COVID-19 vaccination events across the county.
There are more than 500 providers in the county administering the COVID-19 vaccine.
“One million doses is certainly an important milestone, but we’re not done yet,” McGough said. “With variations continuing to grow and get stronger, I encourage people to consider first dose or booster.”
