TULSA — As more private companies start to get vaccine supplies, some have begun partnering with non-profits and churches to help with distribution.
Friday, Tulsa’s Asbury United Methodist Church announced it will work with Passport Health to conduct vaccination clinics in south Tulsa.
Jim Davis, Director of Outreach for Asbury, tells KRMG they want to be as inclusive as possible.
“We’ve (been) intentional of trying to get this out to the entire community,” he said Friday. “We don’t want this to be an Asbury event, we want it to be an event for our city, north, east, south and west.”
That said, because Passport Health gets its supply from the state, OSDH rules still apply.
Davis says they are only taking appointments for people 65 and older, and they will not provide vaccine to people who just show up without an appointment.
They will post an appointment link on their website and on social media on Mondays at noon.
They hope to provide at least 500 doses per week for about four weeks, then bring the same people back for their second dose on weeks 5-8.
