In an effort to bring more vaccines to Tulsans, Kendall Whittier Main Street has partnered with Foster Corner Drug in Perry and St. Francis Xavier to bring a Pfizer clinic to the district on April 23.

The clinic will take place from 3-7 p.m. on April 23 for anyone looking for a first dose or for a second dose for those who received the first Pfizer vaccine on or before April 2.
A follow up clinic will be at the same time three weeks later, May 14, for recipients to receive their second dose. Those interested in receiving the vaccine are highly encouraged to make an appointment online here, but walk-ins will be welcome as well.
“We decided to plan for this vaccine clinic to come to Kendall Whittier to get as many of our residents vaccinated as possible,” said Sydney Alison, KWMS Community Engagement Coordinator. “The city is slowly opening back up again, so making sure that business owners and residents in Kendall Whittier feel safe living and working here is very important to us.”
The clinic will be in the Our Lady of Guadalupe Activity Center at St. Francis Xavier Church, 2515 E. 1st St. S. The Activity Center is a separate building, located on the north east side of church complex. Those seeking the vaccine can enter through the doors on the west side of the Center and can park in either the parking lot off Atlanta Avenue or Admiral Boulevard.
Although many Tulsans have had the opportunity to take off work and drive hours away to receive the vaccine – and even take off work the following day if they feel unwell – not everyone has had that opportunity.
“We know how hard it can be to get away from work during the day or travel long distances, so that’s why we planned this one for a Friday 3-7 p.m. – to ensure that all have the opportunity to get vaccinated and, hopefully, have a day or two of rest after,” Alison said.
Vaccinations are free, however, insured individuals should bring a copy of their insurance card. Uninsured individuals can provide a drivers’ license number, a state identification number or a social security number, if possible.
Those who have received their first dose previously must bring a copy of their vaccination record card.
After scheduling an appointment, please fill out and print this consent form for a quickest experience. Additional forms will be available at the vaccine clinic site.
The organization is looking for volunteers to work the event, including bilingual volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Alison at sydney@visitKendallWhittier.com. Volunteer shifts are two and four hours long.
The idea came from the successful partnership Foster Corner Drug and East Tulsa Main Street, where nearly 200 people received a vaccine, Alison said.
