Tulsa Public Schools took a giant step today to get back to normal by giving the Covid-19 vaccine to employees 65 and over.
Superintendent Dr. Deborah Gist was asked about the press conference held by Governor Stitt on Tuesday, honoring schools in Tulsa and Oklahoma City for the not-yet-reopened school.
“We will stay on course on our Covid-19 protocols and continue to be guided by health professionals,” Gist said.
The vaccines are not mandatory.
The effort is supported by the Tulsa Health Department.
Gist says once teachers and staff in the 65 and over age group get their shots, they will take steps to get the vaccine across to the rest of the staff.
In this first group, around 500 employees are eligible to receive the vaccine.
