Tulsa County Begins Massive Push of 15K COVID Vaccines for Teachers, School Support Workers

Widespread access to the COVID-19 vaccine for Tulsa-area school personnel begins Wednesday and teachers say they’re signing up as quickly as possible.

Passport Health and the Tulsa Health Department are administering the vaccines to Tulsa Public Schools, Union, Glenpool, Liberty and any remaining public and charter school districts. Many Union staff have signed up for their first shots for this Thursday and Friday.

Union Public Schools has had its school buildings open to students from the outset of 2020-21, with various disruptions from class to class and school to school as quarantines, isolations and surging case numbers dictated.

Deena Churchill, president of the classroom teachers association in that district, said Union teachers have been anxiously awaiting the COVID-19 vaccine and are signing up.

“This will help to allay many concerns about whether teachers are safe at school. We are well aware the majority of students need the support of in-person learning and it is this model in which they thrive,” she said. “It has been a true emotional struggle trying to balance that with the risk of contracting COVID-19 and bringing it home to potentially spread to our family members.”
