TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — The Oklahoma State Department of Health's vaccine scheduling portal is supposed to alert people when they're eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and allow them to schedule an appointment.
Unfortunately, Tulsans were unable to schedule on the day the portal launched.
Vaccinations did move forward in Tulsa and will continue Friday.
The issue comes as Tulsans over the age of 65 are set to begin receiving the shot starting Monday.
Folks can register but that only allows them to know when to look for an appointment.
"Your registration is not tied to your priority in the list to get an appointment when you get notification that you’re eligible for the appointment then you go in and schedule an appointment," said Keith Reed, Deputy Commissioner of Community Health Services.
The number of vaccines available will continue to be an issue after the scheduling portal is fixed.
"We want to remind people there are still going to in there are still going to be issues with finding appointments cause again, we’ve got to have some supply in order to match that up with available appointments," Reed said.
Scheduling will be week-to-week as the number of doses received is announced.
