TULSA, OK -- Students and staff at 19 Tulsa schools will be receiving a free H1N1 vaccination.

Tulsa Public Schools is making the vaccine available. The 19 schools have been approved by the Tulsa Health Department to receive the vaccine. The schools are being divided into three groups.

Dates for the second and third groups will be announced by TPS once the health department informs the district.

Group 1:

  • Cooper Elementary, November 3, 9 a.m. - Noon
  • East Central, November 4, 9 a.m. - Noon

Vaccinations are only available for enrolled students and employed staff of the selected sites.

Parents will be responsible for acquiring the second dose either at the health department's physical offices or at another vaccination site.
