COVID-19 vaccinations are NOT required, and the district does not expect parents to solicit medical or vaccination advice from district staff. We urge parents with questions or concerns about vaccinations to contact a pediatrician. Some pediatricians and several local pharmacies offer vaccinations.
Questions regarding the above public vaccination clinics should be directed to the Washington County Health Department at 918-335-3005. Answers to frequently asked questions about vaccinations are available from the Oklahoma State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
