The official rollout of COVID-19 vaccines for teachers and other school employees begins Monday across Oklahoma, while most teachers in the Tulsa-area will apparently have to wait for vaccine shipments delayed by last week’s blast of winter weather.
Districts from Bartlesville to Lawton have announced employee vaccine events beginning Monday, while many Tulsa-area districts, including Tulsa, Union, Jenks, Bixby, Owasso and Collinsville are still awaiting word from the Tulsa Health Department about when their employee doses will be allocated.
One exception is Broken Arrow Public Schools, which notified parents over the weekend that school buildings there will be closed on Thursday and Friday to free up any employee who wishes to get a shot. 1,400 have been reserved for BAPS.
