Chickasaw Nation Offers Free Vaccines to All Oklahomans, Beating State Officials

ADA, Okla. (CN) — The Chickasaw Nation announced Friday evening it is immediately offering Covid-19 vaccines for free to all Oklahoma residents without restrictions, beating state officials who only days earlier expanded access to essential business employees and students and staff at daycares, colleges and trade schools.

The Native American nation tweeted it is accepting online appointments from Oklahomans with “no tribal citizenship or employee requirements” needed. The nation’s registration website said it continues to offer the vaccine to tribe members, Chickasaw Nation Department of Health patients, tribe employees and their families — including those who live outside of Oklahoma.

Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby said the nation is “pleased to do our part” in ending the pandemic. He urged residents to continue wearing masks, socially distance and wash their hands.
