Due to the increasing occurrence of severe illness in young people, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department urges college students to get vaccinated as soon as possible. The Health Department and Jordan Valley Community Health Center will hold several vaccination clinics around the community and at Ozarks Technical College and Evangel University next week.
As of today, close to 24% of individuals ages 12-30 have been fully vaccinated, while more than 45% of all eligible Greene County residents have been fully vaccinated. Cases among those 12-30 represent more than a third of total cases so far in August. It is important the unvaccinated students get vaccinated before participating in activities that include indoor close contact to prevent a surge following the start of the new school year.
The vaccine will help protect students from getting COVID-19 once they become fully vaccinated and help keep them from getting seriously sick even if they do contract the virus.
Below is a list of opportunities for individuals to receive vaccine for the week of August 23-29:
Monday, August 23
Tuesday, August 24
Wednesday, August 25
Thursday, August 26
Friday, August 27
Saturday, August 28
Sunday, August 29
These opportunities are in addition to the recurring vaccination clinics at Jordan Valley Community Health Center’s Tampa Clinic at 440 E. Tampa. Jordan Valley is offering walk-in vaccinations for Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., with extended hours on Tuesday from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. COVID-19 vaccines are also available by appointment or walk-in through CoxHealth and Mercy Hospital Springfield.
