Q&A: How to get the latest information on COVID vaccines

January 6, 2021

When will the virus shots become available and/or when should I apply to get on the list?

The COVID-19 vaccination program is being coordinated by the Washington County Health Department and Washington County Emergency Management Office, not the City of Bartlesville. Because the City isn’t involved in administering the vaccines or coordinating the program, City staff cannot ensure that the most accurate, up to date information is being relayed as this situation has thus far been subject to frequent changes.

Therefore, the Washington County Health Department and the Washington County Emergency Management Office are the best sources of information about vaccinations. Information is available on their Facebook pages, Washington CHD and Washington County Emergency Management. The agencies can also be reached by calling WCHD at 918.335.3005 or WCEM at 918.331.2710.

How many free rides did the police department provide on New Year’s Eve?

The Bartlesville Police Department continued its annual Arrive Alive program by offering free rides home to any Bartlesville resident who may have enjoyed the holiday festivities a little too much on New Year’s Eve. This year Police Chief Tracy Roles and his staff gave rides to three takers. The best news of all, however, is that the department reports no Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol arrests that night and no traffic accidents.
