St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

 

DPH Awarded Grant

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded the St. Louis County Department of Public Health and its community partners a $4.7 million grant to bolster our regional COVID response by building resilient communities.

 

Of that amount, DPH will receive approximately $2.5 million, and five of our community health partners will split the remaining $2.2 million, County Executive Dr. Sam Page announced this morning. Those organizations are:

 

  • The St. Louis Community Health Worker Coalition
  • The University of Missouri St. Louis’ Community Innovation and Action Center
  • The Integrated Health Network
  • Beyond Housing
  • The City of St. Louis Department of Health

 

The total $4.7 million is for the first year of the project. The CDC has told us that the amount may grow to as large as $9.4 million if the agency funds the program in future years.

 

This grant will allow DPH to hire as many as 10 additional health workers. It will also give us the resources to provide comprehensive training for many more community health workers employed by our partners. The goal is to deepen authentic community engagement, advocate for structural change, enhance and sustain partnerships and bolster the power and impact of Community Health Workers in order to build a more resilient community.

 

The program also will allow us to broaden our clinical treatment of the high-risk, under-served and vulnerable populations – especially in African American communities, which statistically have been hit harder by COVID than have others. We know that centuries of discriminatory policies and structures directly hinder Black families’ health and well-being, and systemic racism is now widely recognized as a public health crisis.

St. Louis County COVID-19 Update
New Report Available on COVID Infections in Long-Term Care Facilities
 
Sixty-three new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Saint Louis County long-term care facilities in August, according to a report from the Department of Public Health. This represents an increase from a low of 36 cases reported in March 2021, but a significant decrease from the numbers reported before vaccinations became available. 
 
Long-term care facilities include nursing homes, assisted living centers, and other group care settings. The residents of these facilities tend to be at high risk of COVID-19 due to age, existing health conditions, and close living quarters. To date, long-term care residents account for 5.1 percent of infections reported in the county, but nearly half of all deaths from the disease.
 
Significant mitigation efforts, including vaccination and the use of personal protective equipment, have helped to slow the spread of disease in these facilities.

DPH Communications Efforts Paying Off

Persuading a county of 1 million residents to change behaviors in a once-in-a-century pandemic is a tall order. But St. Louis County is up to the challenge, County Executive Dr. Sam Page said in a press conference this morning.

Dr. Page invited Spring Schmidt, deputy director of the Department of Public Health, to provide an update on DPH’s communications efforts in the pandemic. According to Schmidt:

·  DPH has created and disseminated public service videos, graphics, posters, flyers and other materials across the County encouraging vaccination and other crucial public health actions.

·  The department has conducted and arranged dozens of interviews with regional media partners.

·  Digital advertising connected to the ReviveSTL vaccine hesitancy campaign has reached more than 566,500 County residents so far, making nearly 8.8 million distinct impressions (chances to be seen).

·  More than 84 percent of County residents who clicked on a ReviveSTL video watched it to completion.

·  Television, radio and print advertising from the campaign is projected to have made more than 30 million impressions.

·  More than 25,000 people have visited the new ReviveSTL.com website. African American audiences have been three times more likely to navigate to the site’s vaccination scheduling page than other users, and the numbers are growing.

·  DPH has launched the Barber Shop and Beauty Salon Initiative focused on North County small businesses, visiting 39 businesses and distributing hundreds of flyers and posters encouraging vaccinations.

·  The department has also created and distributed informational videos and conducted virtual town hall meetings involving church leaders and medical professionals in its Faith-Based Initiative.

·  County vaccination rates are rising faster in our most vulnerable communities than countywide. Our six priority zip codes in North County have seen an average 8.2 percent increase in vaccination rate compared to the countywide average of 6.3 percent.

One Million Vaccines Distributed in St. Louis County

 St. Louis County residents have received more than 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine, County Executive Dr. Sam Page announced Monday morning. As a result, 54.7% of the population has at least one dose and 48.4% are fully vaccinated.

“While we have a long road ahead of us, it is worth stopping for a moment to celebrate how far we have come in this pandemic battle,” Dr. Page said. “We have reached a milestone in the fight against COVID-19 in St. Louis County.”

 The 1,004,413 shots recorded by the state as of Friday were distributed by a wide variety of vaccinators, from health systems to community events to private pharmacies. They include first and second doses as well as booster shots to those who are eligible.

 The county’s vaccination rate exceeds the statewide rate of 44.8% but still lags behind public health targets. County officials urge residents to continue wearing masks in public settings to reduce the spread of disease.

 For information on how to get vaccinated, visit ReviveSTL.com. DPH offers 25 different opportunities to get vaccinated in the next seven days in locations across St. Louis County, and the major pharmacy chains also offer free vaccinations at multiple area locations.

St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Vaccine Response in St. Louis County 

The St. Louis County Department of Public Health has administered more than 170,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, to date. 

 On May 16, DPH launched a comprehensive effort to partner with churches, businesses, libraries and non-profits to offer neighborhood clinics in North County. Since then, DPH has conducted 133 neighborhood vaccination clinics in 78 locations. Most of those locations were in North County. DPH’s biggest neighborhood event was in partnership with the Hispanic Leaders Group where 141 COVID-19 doses were administered at the John F Kennedy Community Center in Florissant. 

 In the past eight weeks, COVID-19 vaccination rates have grown the fastest in North County ZIP codes.

 ZIP code 63140 had a 9.5% increase

  • ZIP code 63133 had an 8.5% increase
  • ZIP code 63134 had an 8% increase
  • ZIP code 63135 had a 7.9% increase
  • ZIP code 63136 had a 9.3% increase
  • ZIP code 63137 had a 7.4% increase
  • ZIP code 63138 had an 8.7% increase

 Overall the seven ZIP codes saw an 8.2% increase compared to the countywide increase of 6.3% in the past eight weeks. 

 DPH has also been partnering with barber shops, beauty shops and churches, mostly in North County where there have been long-standing health disparities. To date, DPH staff have visited 35 beauty shops and barber shops apart of the #SleevesUpSTL initiative. As a result of these efforts, DPH has distributed 1,155 flyers and 66 posters regarding COVID-19 vaccinations. DPH has also provided 35 boxes of face masks and more than 200 bottles of hand sanitizer as part of this initiative. 

 DPH continues to have free COVID-19 vaccine clinics across St. Louis County. Most welcome walk-ups, and many allow you the availability to schedule an appointment at your convenience. COVID-19 vaccines are available to anyone 12 and older and they are safe and effective. A complete list of events can be found here.

Pfizer Vaccine Update

The St. Louis County Department of Public Health welcomes the FDA’s decision Monday to grant full approval to the Pfizer vaccine for individuals 16 and up.

The decision means that the vaccine has now gone through the FDA’s standard process for review of quality, safety and efficacy of medical products which reinforced medical experts’ conclusion that the vaccine is safe and highly effective at preventing serious illness or death due to COVID-19. More than 200 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine have been administered in the United States so far, authorities say, and reactions are typically mild and temporary for those who experience them.

The Pfizer vaccine, which will now be marketed under the brand name Comirnaty, currently is available for free at all three of DPH’s permanent clinics – John C. Murphy Health Center, North Central Health Center and the South County Health Center – as well as at most of its neighborhood clinics. The vaccine continues to be available under emergency use authorization for individuals 12 through 15 years of age.

To find a convenient vaccination opportunity, please visit ReviveSTL.com.  Both Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are also available at many DPH locations.

Third dose of COVID-19 vaccine for Immunocompromised

The CDC is now recommending third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for individuals with specific health conditions who received either a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Those health conditions include:

Undergoing active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood

Received an organ transplant and taking medicine to suppress the immune system

Received a stem cell transplant within the last two years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system

Have moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome or Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)

Have advanced or untreated HIV infection

Being treated with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

If you do not have one of these conditions, you do not need to receive a third dose at this time. If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you should not seek out an additional shot. A third shot of either Pfizer or Moderna should be administered no sooner than 28 days following your second dose. It is crucial that only moderately to severely immunocompromised individuals seek out a third shot.

Patients seeking a third dose are encouraged to come to the John C. Murphy Health Center, the North Central Community Health Center or the South County Community Health Center. DPH continues to accept walk-ins, and while DPH recommendations that immunocompromised patients discuss the decision to get a 3rddose with their healthcare provider, patients do not need a referral in order to receive a third dose. Patients are encouraged to bring their vaccination card with them for their third shot. If you no longer have your vaccination card and were not vaccinated by DPH, please attempt to reach out to your original vaccination provider.

In regards to all County residents, DPH is still awaiting the specific details from the CDC and FDA on the boosters.  DPH will absolutely prioritize and lift opportunities for County residents as that becomes more clear. The planning of additional vaccination sites has begun, including the identifying of additional funding needs and as those details become available, our efforts will be announced.
