The examine ranks Oklahoma Metropolis, Tulsa, within the high 20 cities that want vaccines

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – After a U.S. government advisory panel approved the widespread use of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine Thursday, a new study claims Oklahoma is one of the places where vaccines are most needed.

Oklahoma has one of the highest rates in the country for COVID-19 and test positivity rate, according to the latest report from the White House Coronavirus Task Force.

According to this week’s report, Oklahoma has the 16th highest rate in the country for cases and now ranks third for test positivity.

A new poll now shows that two cities in Oklahoma are among the cities most in need of the first COVID-19 vaccine.

WalletHub researchers looked at the number of healthcare workers, frontline workers, those over 65, nursing home residents, and the number of adults with illness.

As a result, WalletHub has Tulsa ranked 18th on the list of cities in need of the first COVID-19 vaccine. Oklahoma City dropped just one point on the 19th.

The cities that made the top 5 of the list are as follows:

  1. Detroit, Michigan
  2. Cleveland, Ohio
  3. Birmingham, Alabama
  4. Memphis, Tennessee
  5. Louisville, Kentucky.

The recordings could begin within a few days, depending on how quickly the Food and Drug Administration is expected to see signs on the recommendation of the Expert Committee.

Pfizer has announced that it will have approximately 25 million doses of the two-shot vaccine for the United States by the end of December. However, primary care will be limited and primarily reserved for healthcare workers and nursing home residents, with other vulnerable groups taking the turn until admissions are generally available on request, which is unlikely to happen until spring.
