More than 150 teachers and staff members from several Tulsa County school districts are scheduled to get the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. All of those getting the vaccine are 65 and older and nursing staff, according to the Tulsa Health Department.
A spokesperson for the Tulsa Health Department confirmed the teachers and staff members getting the vaccine are from the Owasso, Collinsville, Sperry and Skiatook school districts. This also includes eligible people from Rejoice Christian School in Owasso.
