The beginning of summer is underway, which means lots of gatherings among family and friends. Unfortunately, this also means that there is a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19. Making the choice to get vaccinated or tested for COVID-19 can help make the summer more enjoyable for the community.
There will be a Memorial Day testing event on May 26 from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Westside Public Health Center (660 S. Scenic Ave). Testing is open to anyone, including those who are asymptomatic. Anyone who gets a test has an opportunity to honor our servicemen and women with a note which will be mailed via the A Million Thanks Program to any living or deceased serviceperson by Springfield-Greene County Health. For more information about COVID-19 testing, visit COVIDTesting417.com. To learn more about the A Million Thanks Program, visit amillionthanks.org.
Springfield-Greene County Health will also host walk-in vaccine opportunities with community partners during the week of May 23-27.
Individuals who receive a primary (first or second) dose or first booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at a Health Department clinic will receive a $50 gift card while supplies last. Second booster doses are available for immunocompromised individuals 12 and up or anyone age 50 and over at least four months after a first booster dose. Gift card incentives are not available for a second booster dose.
Vaccination appointments are also available Monday-Friday at Westside Public Health Center (660 S. Scenic Ave.) from 1-4:30 p.m. To schedule, visit vaccine417.com or call the COVID-19 Call Center at 417-874-1211.
