In partnership with the Missouri National Guard, Missouri State Emergency Management Agency and Moniteau County 911/Emergency Management, the Moniteau County Health Center will help facilitate two mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics, on March 30-31.
Events such as these are held throughout the state and provide the ability to vaccinate around 2,000 people, according to the Health Center.
Those interested in signing up should visit covidvaccine.mo.gov/navigator or call 877-435-8411. Once registered with the state's vaccine navigator, registrants should be notified via email or text message when the event is finalized to complete registration.
Vaccinations will be given in accordance with Missouri's phased roll-out plan. To check eligibility, visit covidvaccine.mo.gov/residents.
Missouri began vaccinating individuals who fall under Phase 1B — Tier 3 this week; that group includes workers in K-12 education, child care, government, food and agriculture, and water and wastewater systems, among other occupations.
The Moniteau County Health Center also will continue to work through its own COVID-19 vaccination wait list. Those signed up through the Health Center's list are not automatically signed up to get vaccinated at the mass site and will need to register.
More than 2,600 vaccines have been administered by the Moniteau County Health Center to date.
There were three active COVID-19 cases among Moniteau County residents as of 1 p.m. Wednesday.
