St. Louis County COVID-19 Update
 
Mass Vaccination Sites
 
The St. Louis County Department of Public Health is on schedule to administer more than 18,000 vaccinations, the highest one-week total that we’ve hit so far in the pandemic.
 
DPH offers vaccinations in a variety of settings in order to remove barriers and make it as convenient as possible for residents – and especially our most vulnerable individuals.  As County Executive Dr. Sam Page announced this morning, we are partnering with area fire districts to reach residents of senior homes as well as the homebound, and we are finalizing plans to vaccinate our unhoused individuals through a partnership with our Department of Human Services and other partners in the community.
 
We also will offer two mass vaccination events this week. The first is Thursday, at Queeny Park. That site proved to be a successful one for us last week, when nearly 4,500 people received a vaccine dose over two days. Tomorrow, we intend to administer another 2,340 doses.
 
Then on Saturday, we will conduct our first South County mass vaccination event at South Technical High School at 12721 W Watson Road, where we are set to administer another 2,340 doses.
 
Both events are coordinated by the Department of Public Health with assistance from the Missouri National Guard. The hours at both events will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
 
As always, these events are only available to people with a specific appointment. To get on our list for an appointments, please register at stlcorona.com. Residents should also register with the state at www.covidvaccine.mo.gov, and with local hospitals and pharmacies.
 
These and other vaccination efforts bring hope. But it’s important to keep in mind that we are still in a pandemic. The number of new COVID-19 cases have begun to rise in several places across the country, sparking warnings from federal health authorities. 
 
Please, remember to wear your masks in public, avoid crowds, keep your distance and wash your hands. And of course, get a vaccine when it’s your turn to do so.
