Hofmeister remarks on educator COVID-19 vaccine priority 

OKLAHOMA CITY (Dec. 17, 2020) – With the announcement by Gov. Kevin Stitt that teachers and support staff will be moved up a priority group in the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following statement: 

“Teachers are the heart and soul of our school community, and we cannot have school without them,” said Hofmeister. “Allowing teachers to be among the top priority to get the COVID-19 vaccine is a tremendous move toward protecting the health of our hardworking teachers. I am grateful to Gov. Stitt for his decision to elevate K-12 teachers in the vaccine distribution plan.”
