Administrator Update — March 10, 2021
There are now three COVID 19 vaccines:
Pfizer – 2 shots, 21 days apart
Moderna – 2 shots, 28 days apart
Johnson and Johnson – 1 shot
Our vaccine supply in Missouri is improving, but not all vaccines are available in all areas. The state continues to set the tiers for vaccine availability.
On March 15th Phase 1B – Tier 3: Critical Infrastructure opens. Those who qualify are listed HERE.
Persons from previous approved tiers, that have not gotten their vaccination, continue to be eligible.
It is strongly recommended to take whichever vaccine is being offered and stay with that vaccine to complete the series. DO NOT MIX them. After receiving the final dose, you need to continue with COVID precautions to protect others. You are not considered fully vaccinated until 2 weeks after the final dose.
Update: We now have a limited supply of COVID vaccine. We are holding Friday clinics only. Please call 573-221-1166 for eligibility and to schedule an appointment.
