The Oklahoma Eagle Newswire

 

Today the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) has expanded the next priority groups within Phase 2 of the State of Oklahoma’s priority population framework. Teachers and staff in Pre-K-12 schools and other educational settings and Oklahomans age 16 and older with comorbidities are now eligible to secure an appointment in the Oklahoma Vaccine Portal or with a pandemic partner.

OSDH estimates that there are 89,000 Oklahomans who qualify as teachers and staff, and just over 1 million Oklahomans with comorbidities who qualify for this group. Public health officials appreciate your patience as it may take some time to vaccinate these groups.

The Tulsa Health Department has partnered with Saint Francis Health System, Passport Health and Total Wellness to safely and efficiently vaccinate the estimated 15,483 teachers and staff in pre-K-12 schools in Tulsa County with appointment availability beginning Wednesday, February 24th.

Information regarding how teachers and staff can schedule an appointment has been provided to each school superintendent within Tulsa County.

Total Wellness is administering the vaccines to Broken Arrow, Collinsville, Skiatook, Sperry, Owasso, Keystone, Sand Springs, Berryhill, Jenks, Bixby and EPIC Charter School staff.
