OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Nearly a third of Oklahomans have received at least one coronavirus vaccination, data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed on Friday.

More than 1.26 million people in the state have received at least one dose, according to the CDC data, about 32% of the state’s nearly 4 million residents. More than 753,000 people have completed their vaccinations.

The total number of doses given has topped 2 million, according to deputy state health Commissioner Keith Reed.

“This is another significant milestone for all Oklahomans, and we thank those who have stepped up and done their part to protect the lives and health of our communities across the state,” Reed said.

The state had the 22nd highest percentage of the population receiving at least one dose, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

The rolling average of new Oklahoma coronavirus cases declined during the past two weeks from 447.3 per day to 324.7, according to the Johns Hopkins data, a decrease of 27.4%.

Totals of 439,149 cases and 7,932 deaths since the pandemic began were reported by the Oklahoma State Department of Health, increases of 372 cases from Thursday and 34 additional deaths.

The health department cited CDC death counts in its report.
