Governor Parson announced this week that the Missouri National Guard will begin assisting the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) in establishing COVID-19 vaccination sites across the state. Mass vaccination sites are scheduled to begin this week in the Southeast region, and other sites will be operational in the remaining eight Highway Patrol regions by the end of January. These sites have the capability to provide up to 2,500 doses per day. Targeted vaccination sites provide vaccines to populations outside the reach of mass vaccination sites as designated by DHSS. Teams staffing these sites have the capability to provide up to 160 doses per day. These vaccination sites will ensure that vaccines, which are extremely limited, are being administered efficiently and that every Missourian will have an opportunity to eventually receive one. Missourians are encouraged to visit the state COVID-19 vaccine information site to see the latest news.
