27,000 doses to be administered at mass vaccine events around St. Louis area

Among the events in March are two state-led clinics: one at the Family Arena in St. Charles and another at the North County Recreation Center in St. Louis County

ST. LOUIS — More than 27,000 people in the St. Louis area will be able to get a shot of protection against COVID-19 during several vaccine events over the next couple weeks.

Among the events are several state-led clinics in St. Louis County, St. Charles County and the City of St. Louis.

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson has been criticized over the state's vaccine rollout plan. Leaders in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas have complained rural counties are getting more doses than they need, while the urban areas are getting so little it has become common practice for people to drive hundreds of miles for shots. 

Gov. Mike Parson previously said the state is working to hold more mass vaccination events in the St. Louis area, with the goal of getting more Missouri National Guard teams set up in the area by April 1. The governor shared a list of events happening between now and then in a post on his Facebook page Tuesday.

The vaccine events will be appointment only. Those interested in getting a COVID-19 vaccine should register with each location’s county health department as linked below.
