As the highly contagious and aggressive COVID-19 Delta variant continues to rapidly spread in our community, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department is encouraged that more individuals are seeking vaccine.
In the last week, more than 3,500 Greene County residents were vaccinated against COVID-19. Despite this positive news, more than 60% of Greene County residents remain unvaccinated.
As of Thursday, 173 individuals were being treated for COVID-19 at Springfield hospitals. Currently, the seven-day rolling average for new cases is 127– a 28% increase over the past week.
Everyone 12 and older is strongly encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible -- including those who have previously tested positive for COVID-19. The vaccines are safe, effective and help prevent severe illness and hospitalizations.
Below is a list of opportunities for individuals to receive vaccine for the week of July 5-11:
Tuesday, July 6
Wednesday, July 7
Thursday, July 8
Friday, July 9
Saturday, July 10
These opportunities are in addition to the recurring vaccination clinics at Jordan Valley Community Health Center’s Benton Clinic at 618 N. Benton. 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.
A list of these events and additional opportunities can be found at vaccine417.com or by calling (417) 874-1211.
Individuals may save time by registering for clinics in advance at covidvaccine.mo.gov/navigator. Individuals who pre-register should bring their ID and Vaccine Navigator patient identification number with them to the event. Individuals 12-17 must have parent/guardian consent.
