- Those who received their first dose at the November 16 clinic at Jane Phillips Elementary School can get their second dose at another clinic at Jane Phillips from 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday, December 14.
- The additional clinics at Jane Phillips on December 14 and at Madison on January 4 will also have first, second, and booster doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
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, while questions regarding the public vaccination clinics should be directed to the Washington County Health Department at 918-335-3005.
The district’s current COVID-19 protocols and weekly alert level are posted at BPSLearn.com. Answers to vaccine FAQs are available from the Oklahoma State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
