St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

Vaccination Event at St. Louis County Library

A book giveaway and a visit from a mobile fresh market will highlight a free vaccination event Wednesday afternoon at the Lewis & Clark branch of the St. Louis County Library in Moline Acres.

The vaccination opportunity, from 2 - 6 p.m. Wednesday at the branch at 9909 Lewis and Clark Blvd., is the first in a series to be offered at St. Louis County library branches over this spring and summer. The St. Louis County Department of Public Health will be staffing the event, along with members of North County Fire & Rescue and the library system.

All vaccinations are free and walk-ups are accepted. Participants may also make an appointment by visiting stlcorona.com and clicking on the "Vaccine Appointments" box.

The St. Louis Metro Market, a non-profit mobile farmers' market, will be on site from 2 - 4 p.m., and book giveaways will be conducted throughout the afternoon. 

The event is just one of many community-based vaccination clinics offered by DPH across the county. The neighborhood surrounding the Lewis & Clark branch has a vaccination rate much lower than the county average, so it is crucial that more opportunities become available to make vaccinations as convenient as possible for residents.

Members of the media who wish to cover the event are encouraged to contact Christopher Ave, DPH director of communications, at cave@stlouiscountymo.gov.
