Molina to hold COVID-19 vaccine event in Gulfport on Saturday

MolinaCares Accord, in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of Mississippi, is hosting a series of drive-thru COVID-19 vaccinations events this summer, with an immunization event at 9 a.m. in Saturday in Gulfport.

The event is open to all Mississippians eligible for a vaccine, not just Molina members. Partners for this initiative include churches, providers, and local universities’ nursing programs.

The drive-thru immunization event is one of several that will be held throughout the summer.

“We are pleased to join forces with our partners in this effort to increase access to the COVID-19 vaccine, particularly among underserved populations,” said Bridget Galatas, plan president of Molina Healthcare of Mississippi. “MolinaCares is committed to serving all Mississippians, not just members. Reducing health disparities and safeguarding our communities’ well-being are top priorities.”

The event in Gulfport will be held at:

  • Life Church (in partnership with Triumph Church of Gulfport)
    208 Pass Rd., Gulfport, MS 39507
    9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

“Partnerships with organizations like MolinaCares and Molina Healthcare are essential to addressing the health and safety needs of our community,” said Senator Lydia Chassaniol. “Getting vaccinated is the best way for us to get back to normal and this initiative will help make sure no one is left behind. MolinaCares is making it easy to get a vaccine by meeting people where they are – at local churches and other accessible locations.”

Vaccinations at MolinaCares’ community events will be administered on a first-come first-served basis.
