Oklahoma State University students will receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the third phase of the State Department of Health’s distribution plan.

The plan estimates over a million people in Oklahoma educational settings will need to receive the vaccine. Specific dates or time frames won’t be determined until federal production expenses are known.

OSU Health Services has a vaccine distribution agreement in place with the Payne County Health Department, public information officer Shannon Rigsby said.

“It is anticipated that University Health Services clinical staff will distribute vaccines to early stage eligible university community members,” Rigsby said. “As volumes grow in later phases, the university will rely on resources at the county level to assist with large scale distribution to campus.”

More information on locations and processes will be announced at a later, unspecified date. OSU will launch a web page devoted to vaccine distribution information that will be updated with additional information when available.
