OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A COVID-19 vaccine clinic aimed at local Latinx community members was held in Oklahoma City on Saturday.

The Oklahoma City-County Health Department held a free COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Templo de Alabanza, 301 SW 25th St.

Vaccines were administered up to 6 p.m. An appointment wasn’t not necessary to get the vaccine.

The clinic was part of OCCHD’s continuing neighborhood-centric vaccination effort.

“This will be the first time during the pandemic that OCCHD has held a vaccination event at a church in the LatinX community, though OCCHD has partnered with churches and other LatinX organizations to help increase vaccination accessibility,” an OCCHD official said.

Only 18 percent of Hispanic residents in Oklahoma County are fully vaccinated and 23 percent have received their first dose, according to OCCHD.

All three vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson – were available at the clinic. Both first and second doses were administered.

Adolescents age 12 to 17 were allowed to receive the Pfizer vaccine with a parent or legal guardian on site.
