Janene Stewart, director of operations at Norman Regional Hospital, administers a COVID-19 vaccine in Norman last month on the day teachers and adults with comorbidities became eligible to receive the vaccines.

About four months after Oklahoma administered its first coronavirus vaccines, it will end its phased release program and open the opportunity to all residents over 16. Deputy Commissioner of Health Keith Reed announced in a media availability that starting March 29, everyone over 16 can register for a vaccine. 

"No more screening for eligibility groups," Reed said. "No more need for personal contemplation about whether you are eligible or should get the vaccine. If you are over 16 and live in Oklahoma, you are eligible and should get vaccinated."

Residents can still use vaccinate.ok.gov to access the state scheduling portal. In the Oklahoma City and Tulsa metro areas, residents can find appointments with their county departments of health. You can also check with your health provider and local pharmacy.
