TULSA, Okla — Asbury United Methodist Church participated as a COVID-19 vaccination site in Tulsa.

Passport Health distributed five-hundred first doses of the Moderna vaccine as one of the several vaccine clinics planned.

Jim Davis, the Director of Outreach at Asbury United Methodist Church, tells us, “The passport health administered 500 doses of the Moderna vaccine today and we were thrilled to be a part of that.”

Everyone who received the first does had to pre-register on the church's website or social media page and be 65 or older.

Walk-ins were not accepted, but the clinics continue every Friday and Saturday for the next eight weeks.

“This is not a clinic for Asbury members, this is for the community and just to use our resources to be able to provide that is what we’re called to do.", Davis says.

Davis tells 2 Works for You the church has been wanting to become a vaccination site for a while now.

“We had the capacity both in building space and in volunteers and so within 48 hours of being asked we had the logistics roughed in and the clinic went great today.”, Davis says.

The next opportunity to register is Monday, February 8th.

To register click here for the church's website or click here for the church's social media page.

They are asking that participants are 65 or older, bring a state issued ID, and an insurance card if you have one.

Davis says, “we hope to go for 8 weeks. In general, we look for the first four weeks to be first dose clinics, and then the last four weeks to be the second dose clinics."
