A pair of upcoming pop-up clinics provide opportunities to get vaccinated against COVID-19:
On Friday, April 30 from noon to 7 p.m., MedStar and the City of Fort Worth are hosting a one-day clinic at Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church, 2951 Evans Ave. Up to 1,000 vaccines will be available. All adults 18 years and older are eligible. Walk-ups are available for onsite registration, but residents are encouraged to preregister to make sure they are able to get a vaccine. Select April 30 to set your appointment at Mount Olive.
“I continue to support vaccination programs that protect the health of our residents by bringing COVID-19 vaccines closer to their communities,” said District 8 Councilmember Kelly Allen Gray. “Getting vaccinated is the best way for people to protect themselves and those around them. The more Fort Worth people who get vaccinated, the quicker we will be able to meet up with friends and neighbors and share hugs with our loved ones.”
Another clinic is scheduled for 1-5 p.m. Saturday, May 1. TCU and University Christian Church are hosting the community vaccination clinic at the church, 2720 S. University Drive. Appointments are not needed. Individuals ages 18 and up will receive the first dose of the Moderna vaccine; participants are guaranteed a second Moderna vaccine. Participants will remain in their vehicles throughout the entire process and will enter the University Christian Church parking lot on Rogers Street.
