St. Louis County COVID-19 Update
 
County Urges Vaccinations for Teens as Infections Rise
 
New cases of COVID-19 are up 35 percent over last week in St. Louis County, according to County Executive Dr. Sam Page in his Wednesday morning address. The seven-day rolling average is now 90 cases per day, up from the low 20s several weeks ago.
 
“The new Delta variant is driving these numbers and cases are rising at a faster clip than our vaccination rate,” Page said. 
 
As part of its effort to counter rising infections, the County’s Department of Public Health will offer COVID-19 vaccines to individuals aged 12 and older as part of its annual back-to-school immunization program, which will begin later this month. Eligible students can receive all their shots, at no cost to them or their families, at any of DPH’s three public health clinics in Berkeley, Pine Lawn and Sunset Hills. Students who get vaccinations can also receive physicals and dental services at each location. Extended and weekend hours will be available.  
 
More information about the back-to-school immunization program will be released next week.
