    Most likely. I think the pecking order is supposed to be Nursing homes, 1st responders, medical staff, elderly with comorbidities, elderly at age groups and then who knows.
    We may have a member that has knows more about it.

    A copy of the Oklahoma vaccine plan available to the public. The distribution of the vaccine in phases starts on page 18. There is an expectation of a time between phases, possibly months.

    https://coronavirus.health.ok.gov/si...ation_plan.pdf

    Phase 1: nursing home/assisted living staff, public health staff (frontline testing/vaccine dist), healthcare workers with direct COVID patient care responsibilities, healthcare workers providing inpatient COVD care, nursing home/assisted living residents.

    Phase 2: First responders, adults ages 65 or older, other healthcare workers, group homes/prisons/jails, manufacturing facilities, general public health staff.

    Phase 3: teachers, students, administrative and educational staff, critical infrastructure personnel (essential industries)

    Phase 4: All remaining OK residents.

    PS- it is under construction and a dynamic document, the state will be constantly updating this as time goes on

    Wife is a RN at St. Anthony's. I'll see what she knows and update here if anything of merit. She has to take every immunization known to man so sure this one is coming soon. I guess a lot depends on how many vaccinations are made available. But, it's great news! Wish it had happened prior to the election.

    Not taking it. Had covid and got over it. No worse than the flu. I feel sorry for the people they send to my house to give it to me and the people who come look for those people. F**k the government. Look at the current situation our country is in. Its obvious that there are some evil people running the world. The elite have very sinister plans for our great land it doesn't include us riding along. They would've been done with their plan if Hilary had won in 16. You can look for another pandemic to follow this one. Covid was a test run so they could see how it worked
    Expect the next one to kill way more of us.

    My brother in law and his cousin, my golfing buddies, both have come down with Covid. The cousin had to be transported to a hospital in Arkansas and my B-I-L is still at home but getting worse. I haven't been around either in over 3 wks so I think I dodged a bullet.
    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    I had my 9th COVID test (7th mandated) done this morning. Our state director said that when the vaccine comes out we will likely be mandated to get it. It’s already causing an uproar as our HR department said if our job requires it then we will be mandated to get it just like having to get tested and wear masks. Already had a few terminated for refusal to wear masks. If we refuse the vaccine then our jobs can be terminated. Our watch commander last night took an formal poll and some 50%+ of our shift said they wouldn’t get it. I think we had 43 officers on shift last night. We fully lock down and mandate OT with anything under 32 officers.

    What's interesting to me is, per ADA and EEOC: legally, an employer cannot require you to take a COVID test for your job. ADA and EEOC have already released statements on this earlier this year. That's like requiring you to take an HIV test for your job, same thing. I've already done the research and I've barked up the tree for the Commissioner of Labor in OK to release some statement. We have people showing up to our testing sites once a week, every week "for their jobs", unnecessarily and it is clogging up the queue for people who actually need testing.

    That said, all employers in the US can require their employees to provide proof of vaccination or threaten termination.

    Just to clarify, the context of which I am mentioning the COVID testing required by employers is blanket testing, where all employees are simply sent for or request to be tested with no medical basis or otherwise. I know of several employers who wanted to start "random" COVID testing of their staff, can't do that.
