news flash - vaccine update

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department, Missouri State University and area partners invite our community to a COVID-19 vaccine mega event at Hammons Student Center on the Missouri State campus on April 8-9, 2021.

Our goal is to vaccinate 10,000 individuals over the two-day event, which would be the largest single-site event to date in the State of Missouri. 

The Health Department encourages all individuals to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect yourselves and your loved ones, even if you have already had COVID-19. This is especially important as variants of the virus continue to surge in some states. The sooner that individuals in our community get vaccinated and continue to follow guidance, the sooner we will be able to lift restrictions and return to a sense of normalcy. Don’t Wait! Vaccinate!

Individuals interested in receiving vaccine during this event must first register through Missouri’s Vaccine Navigator program at covidvaccine.mo.gov/navigator. They will then receive an email from the MO DHSS Vaccine Navigator system to schedule an appointment. Individuals must be 18+ and a resident of Missouri.

Although this event will require an appointment, the Health Department can help with registration! 

Individuals without internet access or who need assistance registering or scheduling an appointment can call the Health Department’s COVID-19 call center at (417) 874-1211 Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You may also visit Vaccine417.com for registration and other information.

Individuals will not be charged anything out-of-pocket to receive vaccine.
