Those will all go to Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Lawton. Any vaccines left over will then be distributed among the smaller towns. On the other side of the Red River, Texas will be getting around 10,000 vaccines.
All of those vaccines will go to physicians who take part in the Vaccines for Children Program. Both states are using the vaccines for high-risk patients.
