The Sallisaw Health and Wellness Center will hold a FREE COVID-19 vaccination distribution clinic this Saturday, March 20th. The distribution will be held from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. Distributions will also be held during this time at their Stigler and Wilburton locations.
Anyone over 18 years-of-age is eligible to receive the vaccine. The vaccine will be administered on a first come, first served basis.
Marketing Director Connie Olcott stated that at their previous distribution the center served over 500 patients. On Saturday the clinic will have 1,000 doses to distribute. "Since the clinic isn't actually open on Saturday we will have plenty of volunteers and anticipate things moving more swiftly this time," Olcott said.
"We are committed to quality care and want to make sure that the vaccine is available for everyone," Olcott said. "Here's your chance!"
Olcott said that they have had people coming in from all over Oklahoma, Arkansas and even Missouri to receive their vaccine.
The Health and Wellness Center will be distributing the Moderna vaccine. Patients will receive a second dose after four weeks.
The Sallisaw Health and Wellness Center is located south of Sallisaw at 1630 Kerr Blvd.
