Draft OSDH Vaccine Plan

As part of the preparation process for the arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) required each state to put together a comprehensive plan describing what the implementation of the new vaccine may look like for their jurisdiction. The plan outlined here is a draft for Oklahoma that was submitted to the CDC on October 16. This plan will be updated pending any feedback from the CDC in the coming weeks.


 

Program Provider Enrollment

Thank you for your interest in becoming a COVID-19 vaccine provider. Any facility, organization, or healthcare provider licensed to possess, administer vaccine, or provide vaccination services in Oklahoma is eligible to enroll.  

Before you proceed, please read carefully the information below to ensure you use the correct enrollment process for your organization and organization's facilities. 

 

Already enrolled as a Pandemic Vaccination Provider?

Oklahoma had enrolled Pandemic Vaccine Providers in June-October, 2020. If you are unsure as to whether your facility has previously enrolled, please check this map.  

  • If your facility HAS previously enrolled as a Pandemic Vaccination Provider, you will need to use the individual "Retake" link. This link will be emailed to the Primary and Back-up Pandemic Vaccine Coordinators by November 4, 2020. If they do not receive this link, please contact the Immunization Service team at [email protected] or at (405) 271-4073. 

  • If your facility HAS NOT enrolled as a Pandemic Vaccination Provider, please proceed with the online enrollment. To ensure all facilities use the correct enrollment process, we will ask you to confirm enrollment status. If you are unsure, please check this map or contact Immunization Service team at [email protected] or at (405) 271-4073. 

 

How to become a COVID-19 vaccinator?

The first step to becoming a COVID-19 vaccine provider is completing this "COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Enrollment Form." Before you start, please read about the enrollment process

Only local County and City-County Health Departments and providers enrolled through this form and approved by the Oklahoma State Department of Health can receive and administer COVID-19 vaccine in Oklahoma.

 

What organizations should complete this enrollment?

All organizations that wish to store and administer pandemic COVID-19 vaccine should complete this enrollment.  Each organization facility or location, including those that are part of a hospital system or clinic network, must complete "COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Enrollment" separately. This includes outpatient clinics and physician practices that are owned or managed by the system.   
 
Example #1: if a clinic network has 12 clinics, then each of the 12 clinics must complete this enrollment. Do not submit enrollment for each individual healthcare provider practicing in the clinic.

Example #2: if a clinic has 10 doctors, then clinic must complete only one enrollment and list 10 doctors at the end of the enrollment.

 

Who can complete and sign this enrollment form?

  • Chief Medical Officer (or Equivalent) and Chief Executive Officer (or Chief Fiduciary) must complete and sign only "Section A” of the CDC agreement (more details below).
  • Medical/pharmacy director or location’s vaccine coordinator should complete the whole enrollment form. This person can complete enrollment for all organization's locations/facilities.  

 

How long does it take to complete the enrollment?

Depending on responses, "COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Enrollment" may take up to two hours.  

Before starting the enrollment, you can read all questions and collect necessary information. Be aware that some questions have a drop-down list and you can choose only one option from the list (County, Facility type, etc.). Some questions are displayed only if certain conditions are met. Notes about these conditions are included.  

This list of question is for information purposes only. Please do not use it as the enrollment form!
