Saint Francis Reopens Drive-Thru COVID Vaccination Clinic


Saint Francis is once again running its drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination site in Tulsa. 

The move comes on the heels of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention clearing the way last week for booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine at six months for people 65 and older, nursing home residents, adults 50 to 64 years old with health problems, and anyone 18 and up if they have a job that puts them at high risk of exposure to the coronavirus.

The drive-thru clinic will give not only booster shots to eligible people, but also first and second doses of COVID vaccines.

"At Saint Francis, we think that the best chance we have of getting past this pandemic is with vaccinations. So, to date, we've given more than 95,000 doses of vaccine. Primarily, this is the Pfizer vaccination," said Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs Dr. Mark Frost.

The drive-thru is at 6600 S Yale Ave., behind the Warren Clinic Tower. It’s open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.

Appointments are required and can be made at saintfrancis.com.
