Oklahoma no longer accepting full federal vaccine allocation

(AP) Oklahoma is no longer accepting its full federal allocation of coronavirus vaccines as demand for the doses has fallen. Deputy state health Commissioner Keith Reed said Tuesday he doesn’t have exact numbers, but the state is allocated for more than 200,000 doses weekly and orders tens of thousands instead. Reed said vaccinations have dropped from an average of about 28,000 per day to 10,000-11,000 per day. Gov. Kevin Stitt has also announced the lifting of the COVID-19 emergency declaration for the state, effective Tuesday. Stitt said new virus cases are declining, and hospitalizations are stabilizing.
