Now that everyone aged 16 and older is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the state of Oklahoma, a “significant” amount of Oklahoma City Thunder players and staff were given their first doses on March 30.

The vaccines were administered by OU Health.

The Thunder posted some pictures on the team’s Twitter and Instagram accounts, including one of Luguentz Dort jokingly holding Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s hand as the needle went into his arm.

The Thunder join a growing list of NBA teams that have received the vaccine along with the Atlanta Hawks, Miami Heat, New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.
