Low turnout for Tulsa’s federal mass vaccination clinic, FEMA says

TULSA, Okla. — The new federal mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic set up at Tulsa Community College Northeast Campus has seen a low turnout since its opening last Wednesday.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is running the site, says they saw only 500 people come to get their shots in the first two days.

A FEMA spokesperson told FOX23 the low turnout could be for a variety of reasons including hesitancy, the ease of vaccination and the number of people in the area who’ve already received their shots.

The site is scheduled to be open for eight weeks, but that plan could change depending on the numbers.

FEMA says numbers are down nationwide.
