As the Starkville Oktibbeha School District prepares for a return to our schools, classrooms, stages and playing fields and courts in August, vaccinations are our best defense against the spread of COVID-19.
The Starkville Oktibbeha School District urges all employees and all students above the age of 12 with parent permission to be fully vaccinated.
Vaccine appointments are available throughout our community at OCH Regional Medical Center, Walmart, WalGreens and Kroger stores. You may also check with your local health care provider or pharmacy to schedule your vaccine or go to covidvaccine.umc.edu to schedule your vaccine at the Oktibbeha County Health Department.
Individuals who are fully vaccinated are not required to quarantine if exposed to a positive Covid-19 case unless they become symptomatic. Proof of vaccination may be required.
