As COVID-19 vaccinations are available, here are Missouri’s target phases for the vaccine:
The State of Missouri says residents can contact their local health department or the vaccinators below to schedule getting the vaccine, but the state strongly encourages residents to seek out the websites of their local provider, health department or pharmacy first to see if they 1) have a system already in place for registration, and 2) have vaccine available.
“The State of Missouri encourages residents willing to be vaccinated to register with their local health department or care provider to expedite their ability to get vaccinated when supply becomes available. DHSS is working to make a registration system available for local public health agencies across Missouri. Additional information on this system is forthcoming in the next few weeks.” – DHSS. “Most importantly, supply is still the factor that is limiting vaccinations throughout the state. Missouri vaccinators are receiving approximately 76,000 doses per week, and more than 2.5 million people are currently eligible to receive it. Patience is key.”
