Hofmeister remarks on expanded vaccine opportunity for teachers, school staff  

OKLAHOMA CITY (Feb. 11, 2021) – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following remarks today after the announcement by Gov. Stitt that teachers and school staff will be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine beginning at the same time as adult Oklahomans with a comorbidity.

"Our teachers and support staff deserve and need to work in a safe and secure environment. Giving them this opportunity to receive the vaccine as soon as reasonably possible is critical. While in-person school is more dependent on COVID mitigation strategies such as masks and social distancing , ensuring the vaccination of teachers is vital to keeping school doors open. I urge all Oklahomans, teachers and non-teachers alike, to welcome the vaccine as soon as they are eligible."
