SpringFest To Go! Pickup Day @ Tulsa Garden Center at Woodward Park
Mar 31 all-day

Although SpringFest at Woodward Park is currently postponed, we found it extremely distressing to leave our plant vendors stuck with inventory and negative impacts to their income and livelihoods, so we found a solution – SpringFest To Go! What better way to remedy our customer’s cabin fever and help them get started on their spring planting than to provide a drive-up service for plant purchases!

We’ve teamed up with local plant vendors to offer an online, pre-order/pre-pay drive-up service with scheduled appointment times in 15 minute intervals to minimize public contact. Stop by, stay in your car, and let our gloved staff load up your plants! Shop below, schedule your appointment time, and then come visit us in Woodward Park!

Oklahoma Caring Van @ Peoria WIC
Mar 31 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Oklahoma Caring Vans are helping to fight the spread of the flu virus this season. The program’s nine mobile units have been traveling throughout the state and are expected to provide nearly 9,000 flu vaccinations to Oklahoma children.

Flu season typically runs from October through April. Because strains of the flu change each year, the annual flu shot is the best way to avoid the flu and complications associated with the virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control, children are at greater risk for flu related health issues and commonly require medical care, especially under the age of five. The Caring Van program provides a critical resource for many children who may not receive a flu shot in a traditional clinic setting.

The Oklahoma Caring Van Program provides immunizations and other preventative services at no charge to children, aged six weeks through 18 years, who are uninsured, Medicaid eligible or American Indian. In addition to flu shots, the Caring Vans provide all immunizations required by Oklahoma law for enrollment in school or child care.

Immunizations are given on a first come, first serve basis. For each child immunized, a parent or guardian must provide current shot records and complete paperwork.

Please see below for the Tulsa Caring Van public clinics happening in March. A full schedule of clinics can be found at oklahomacaringfoundation.org, on Facebook  at facebook.com/oklahomacaringfoundation or Text TULSAVAN to 33633 to receive our van schedule (standard data and messaging rates may apply).

About The Oklahoma Caring Foundation: The Oklahoma Caring Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization administered as an in kind gift by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, a Division of Health Care Service Corporation, a Mutual Legal Reserve Company. These companies are independent licensees of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
