The Chickasaw Nation announced Saturday that it is now offering the coronavirus vaccine to all Oklahoma residents.

“We are pleased to do our part to help put an end to this pandemic,” said Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby. “Working together, we can help protect our family, friends and neighbors as we help speed our return to a greater sense of normalcy."

Anoatubby called for continued mask wearing, social distancing and frequent handwashing.

The tribe is offering vaccinations by appointment at its drive-thru site in Ada or at its health clinics in Purcell, Ardmore or Tishomingo.

Those receiving a vaccination must be 18 or older for the Moderna vaccine, and 16 or older for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health is offering vaccinations to people in three of the state’s four-phase plan, recently adding child care workers, higher and Career Tech education and critical business workers to those eligible.

More than 1.1 million vaccinations have been administered by the health department as of Friday.

The department on Saturday reported 431,991 total virus cases and 7,486 deaths due to COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, since the pandemic began.
