Oklahoma Attorney General John O'Connor says he's against requiring children to get the COVID-19 vaccine in order to go to school.

In a statement, O'Connor said that it is wrong to force children to receive the vaccine. He added that parents are entrusted with healthcare decisions for their children, and said it is their choice to decide if their kids get the vaccine.

Both gubernatorial candidates Kevin Stitt and Joy Hofmeister are also against any requirements.
