Some places across in the St. Louis area have been having difficulty getting the COVID-19 vaccine for its residents.
Last week, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson sent a letter to Governor Mike Parson regarding vaccine supply in the city. She sent the letter after a new federal program was announced that some Walmart pharmacy locations would begin offering the vaccine. In the letter, Krewson said there are no Walmart locations in the city and requested the state to allow CVS and Walgreens pharmacies in the city to become vaccinator sites.
Jefferson County Health Director Kelley Vollmar also talked about the county’s struggle in getting COVID-19 vaccines. She said part of the problem is the state’s plan – sending vaccines to large hospitals that can handle large vaccination events and sending the National Guard to rural areas.
"We literally are in the middle size of things. We don't have the resources St. Louis and that metro area really has in terms of the hospital systems and private providers. But on the flip side of it, we're not considered a rural county."
