Mayor McClure praises Springfield-area legislators for bipartisan vaccination clinic

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Springfield Missouri Mayor Ken McClure says that many things make him proud about Springfield. Despite difficult times, like the recent surge of COVID-19 cases and deaths, he is both proud and grateful to those who are willing to take a stand and take action to help the community. Missouri Senator Lincoln Hough, R-Springfield; House Minority Leader Crystal Quade, D – Springfield; Rep. John Black, R-Marshfield; Rep. Craig Fishel, R-Springfield; Rep. Betsy Fogle, D – Springfield; and Rep. Alex Riley, R-Springfield have made him proud by announcing a bipartisan vaccine clinic Saturday, July 31, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Missouri State University’s parking lot 39, south of Kentwood Hall, just north of Walnut Street.

The combined effort comes at a time when the COVID-19 delta variant outbreak in Springfield made national headlines. The legislators say in a statement that they recognize that the pandemic has taken a turn for the worse this summer and hospitals have reached a tipping point. They hope a unified message removes politics from the discussion over the vaccine.

“This is the kind of leadership and commitment I am so proud to see,” Mayor McClure said. “I hope that their constituents take advantage of this additional opportunity to receive the vaccine and I am just so thankful for their love of Springfield and this kind act that demonstrates their commitment to the health and safety of those they represent.”

McClure encourages community members to attend the clinic, where he believes allowing a space where people can meet with medical professionals, have questions answers and make their personal vaccination decision, will offer an additional peace of mind to residents of the Springfield community.
