Health Department and community partners offer public vaccination opportunities

news-update

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is partnering with the Springfield-Greene County Library District, Springfield Public Schools and other community partners to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics throughout the community starting this week. 

This is not the first time the Health Department has joined together with the Library and SPS to provide vaccination opportunities to the public and the Health Department is looking forward to working with them and other partners again to make COVID-19 vaccines more accessible across the Ozarks. 

These events are walk-in only – no appointments required – and free of charge. Additionally, all individuals who receive a first or second dose of the vaccine at one of these clinics are eligible for a $50 gift card.
