An Oklahoma transgender woman was refused her first covid-19 vaccination by Logan County Health Center due to a “mismatched id.”

She told the Logan County official that she was waiting for her updated ID but she hadn’t yet received it. The official told her she couldn’t get vaccinated and to ‘take it up with the state’.

The transgender victim decided wisely not to reveal her name to the local TV station.

Freedom Oklahoma a statewide advocacy group asked @healthyOklahoma why she was told to ‘take it up with the state’.

They weren’t “aware” of the situation until they were embarrassed enough to answer a tweet.

Freedom Oklahoma verified that the transgender woman was able to get vaccinated Friday when she returned to the Logan County site.

Three Years To Life in prison for assisting a transgender person

Oklahoma state legislature has five anti-transgender bills in the works from trans healthcare to sports. The worst is SB 676 a bill that would make anyone knowledgeable of a person 21 years of age transitioning a felon. They would be punishable by imprisonment in the custody of the Department of Corrections for a term of not less than three (3) years nor more than life and a fine of not more than Twenty Thousand Dollars.

Tell me that is an isolated event. 21 GOP-controlled states have passed or in the process of enacting bills attacking transgender adolescents’ right to life. This is about the GOP controlling bodies that they hate.
