This week’s COVID-19 public vaccination opportunities: July 13 - 16

COVID-19 News

Springfield-Greene County Health is offering multiple opportunities to get vaccinated against COVID-19 this week following the county’s recent rise to high impact level status by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

The rise to a high impact community level indicates COVID-19 related hospitalizations are up in our community, currently at a rate of 11 per 100,000. Data continues to show that being up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations can lower your chance of being hospitalized with severe symptoms. 

For more information about high community impact level and recommendations on how to stay safe against COVID-19, visit health.springfieldmo.gov/Coronavirus. 

In a continued effort to ensure everyone has opportunities to get vaccinated, the Health Department will host five pop-up clinics throughout the community for the week of July 13-16. 

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.  

The Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are approved for ages 6 months and up. Springfield-Greene County Health is currently only offering vaccinations for ages 5 and up. 

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.
