Carter County COVID-19 vaccine tracker: 20% people fully vaccinated
Some 20% of people living in Carter County are fully vaccinated as of April 13, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC considers someone fully vaccinated two weeks after they've been given a single-dose shot (Johnson & Johnson) or a second shot (either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).
Oklahoma reported 443,882 total cases of coronavirus, an increase of 0.85% from the week before.
The five counties with the highest percentage of their population fully vaccinated in Oklahoma as of April 13 are McIntosh County (30%), Alfalfa County (29%), Kiowa County (28%), Caddo County (28%) and Craig County (27%).
Good Shepherd Community Clinic continues to distribute the two-dose Moderna vaccines in Ardmore, but guidance from the Oklahoma State Department of Health on Tuesday has paused the single-dose option.
"We do have Johnson & Johnson but those are on hold for now. We are still giving the COVID vaccine on an appointment basis off of our waiting list," said Chief Medical Officer Melissa Hallum.
According to vaccinefinder.org just before noon on Wednesday, retail pharmacies in Carter County including Walmart, Homeland and Reed Family Pharmacy, had Moderna and Pfizer vaccines in stock.
Availability of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines varies between locations and should be verified before scheduling.
