MEMPHIS, Tennessee — A prominent Memphis house of worship now also is a COVID-19 vaccination site.

Leaders with Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church made the announcement in a post to its Facebook page Wednesday.

To begin with, they said appointments for the first shot of the Pfizer vaccine are available for members of MBCC, family members, and friends who are at least 65 years old.

Here is the entire letter, which had the heading “COVID 19 Vaccination Opportunities.”

Greetings Fellow Disciples,

The appointment availability for those 65 years old or older will be scheduled by Methodist Hospital for Monday, March 1, 2021 between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.  If you meet the age requirements and desire to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 Virus, please click on the link below and apply online.  As mentioned, you will be scheduled and notified by Methodist Hospital of the time of your appointment.
