OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City-County Health Department on Wednesday announced plans to offer 10,000 coronavirus vaccinations to all comers.

Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available April 7 at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City to residents of any country who sign up at vaxokc.com and provide an ID at the site, said department spokesperson Molly Fleming.

“We’re here for public health … if they’re going to live here they need to be vaccinated,” Fleming said.

The department and several health partners will provide the vaccines, which include 5,000 doses of the one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and 2,500 doses each of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health on Wednesday reported 438,364 virus cases since the pandemic began and 7,873 deaths, based on death certificates provided to the federal Centers for Disease Control.



The seven-day rolling averages of both new cases and deaths in the state have declined over the last two weeks, from 513.3 new cases daily to 334.3 and from 12.4 daily deaths to 8.9, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
