Fire Department partners with Passport Health

Post Date:02/10/2021 3:00 p.m.

On February 16, 2021, the City of Broken Arrow will open the first local COVID-19 vaccination site in Broken Arrow. The clinic, in partnership with Passport Health, will be held at the Public Safety Complex every week, starting February 16th through April 8th, from 9:00am to 3:00pm, Monday through Thursday (excluding City holidays). Please note, February 15th is a City Holiday.

The clinic is open to anyone who meets the current state vaccination phase requirements. Appointments are required and must be made in advance on the Passport registration website. Appointment dates for each week of the clinic will be loaded to the portal the preceding Friday at 9:00am.

“The City Council and Administration is happy to provide such an important initiative to the Broken Arrow community, for residents who wish to get vaccinated,” said Mayor Craig Thurmond. City officials have been working with the State of Oklahoma to find options for Broken Arrow vaccination sites, Thurmond added.

The initial goal will be to vaccinate 125/per day for the first four weeks (2,000 total), and then to provide the second dosage to those same recipients in weeks 5-8. We will continuously evaluate the demand and resource availability, while working with Passport Health to adapt the size and duration of the event.

Fire Chief Jeremy Moore said, “Our firefighters and paramedics have been on the frontlines responding to the pandemic since the beginning. Now, we are excited to partner with Passport Health to take an active role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Just as we work to prevent fires in our community, this new vaccine distribution clinic will help us slow the spread of this illness throughout Broken Arrow.”

Residents who wish to sign up for vaccine may do so through the online Passport Health portal. This website is not part of the State of Oklahoma vaccination portal. This Friday will be the initial date the portal opens.
