Mass Vaccination Event Raises County Total Vaccinations Above 20,000
El sábado 20 de febrero, el Departamento de Salud Pública se asoció con la Agencia de Manejo de Emergencias del Estado de Missouri y la Universidad de Missouri — St. Louis para organizar un evento de vacunación masiva que sirvió a 2,375 personas. El evento funcionó sin problemas con la ayuda de 150 voluntarios de la comunidad, la mayoría de los cuales trabajaron junto al personal como vacunadores.
County Executive Page announced that these shots bring the total number of vaccine doses delivered in the county to 20,851. This figure reflects 16,551 people who have received one or both doses. Residents who want a slot at a future mass vaccination event can pre-register with the state at covidvaccine.mo.gov.
Shipment Expected Following Inclement Weather
Last week’s winter storm delayed the 3,000 vaccine doses that were scheduled for delivery to DPH. As a result, the state will deliver two weeks’ worth of vaccine to the county this week. With 6,000 doses on hand, DPH hopes to work quickly through those in eligible tiers who have pre-registered.
Anyone who has not yet done so can visit stlcorona.com to fill out a pre-registration form. Residents may pre-register with both the state and county, as well as any other health care providers who offer the vaccine. DPH will contact people from the pre-registration list as they become eligible under state guidelines to make appointments.
