St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

County to Offer Walk-Up Vaccination Clinics
 
For the first time, the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health has begun offering COVID-19 vaccinations without a prior appointment. With all Missouri adults now eligible to receive the vaccine, the County is seeking to make it more accessible and convenient, as announced by St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page this morning.
 
From 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday and Thursday, anyone may walk up and get vaccinated at the Heman Park Community Center at 975 Pennsylvania Avenue in University City. The same services will be available in the gym at Florissant Valley Community college today from noon to 6 p.m. and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
 
“This is only our latest attempt to break down barriers to getting vaccinated,”  Dr. Page said on Monday. “Our focus on equity and serving our most vulnerable populations has led us to create many different kinds of opportunities for County residents to get vaccinated.”
 
Anyone who comes to the sites at the times mentioned above can receive a vaccine. There is no need to register or schedule in advance, but residents who wish to learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and testing can visit stlcorona.com. Residents may also schedule vaccination appointments at other locations and times at the site.

Vaccine Partnership 

​The partnership with local Fire and EMS agencies continues to be successful as they have collectively administered nearly 40,000 vaccines. The Richmond Heights Fire Department, Pattonville Fire Protection District, Mehlville Fire Protection District, Eureka Fire Protection District and Affton Fire Protection District have all been actively participating in this program since early February and continue today.
