St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

Community Organizations Partner With County to Vaccinate Residents

The County continues to build partnerships in the community to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine. These partnerships are intended to reach into neighborhoods and gathering places so that residents can get their shots at the places they already visit.

Vaccines will be administered today from 2 to 6 p.m inside the Lewis and Clark Library meeting room at 9909 Lewis and Clark Boulevard in Moline Acres. This will be the first in a series of vaccination clinics offered at St. Louis County Library branches this summer. The event will include book giveaways and a visit from the St. Louis Metro Market, a nonprofit mobile farmers market.

As always, the COVID-19 vaccine is available at no cost. No identification or proof of residence is required.

The Department of Public Health is accepting applications from any organization that would like to hold a vaccine event. DPH will provide vaccines and staff, while the organization must provide a space and promote the event. For more information, go to stlcorona.com​ and click “Vaccination Partnerships".

COVID-19 Vaccines for Children and Teens
Although fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can:
  • Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
  • Get sick from COVID-19
  • Spread COVID-19 to others.
CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Please continue to practice personal protective measures. Additional information from the CDC can be found here.​
