COVID-19 Vaccination Continue in the City of St. Louis

Another City of St. Louis Department of Health COVID-19 second dose clinic was hosted yesterday afternoon. The Department of Health and its partners administered 420 doses of Pfizer vaccine at 1520 Market Street to residents who received their first dose of vaccine on March 31st. The clinic ran from noon to 6:00 p.m.

'We saw a lot of smiles as individuals were leaving the clinic,' said Justen Hauser, Emergency Preparedness Planner for the City of St. Louis Department of Health. 'You could actually see the relief on faces.'

As vaccination efforts continue the Department of Health is joining other public health and medical officials in reminding City of St. Louis residents that vaccines, although important, are not 100% effective. They are not a panacea. Individuals must continue to wear a face covering, social distance themselves from others, especially those who do not live in their household, practice good hygiene and limit their risk of being exposed to SARS CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Implementing these measures are essential to protect public health and reopen the economy.

If you are looking for a first dose of a vaccine the Department of Health encourages you to visit the Federal Emergency Management Agency Community Vaccination Clinic at the Dome - Gate C (Broadway & Cole). The Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. seven days a week. An appointment is not necessary.
