This week’s COVID-19 public vaccination opportunities: September 12 – September 17

COVID-19 News

As the summer begins to wind down, COVID-19 cases continue to decline with it. The current rolling 7-day daily average for COVID-19 cases in Greene County is 43 compared to 58 this time last month. 

With fall festivities and flu season on the horizon, getting your COVID-19 vaccine or booster can help you be prepared and prevent severe illness and hospitalization. 

To continue providing opportunities for the community to get vaccinated and be protected against COVID-19, Springfield-Greene County Health will host pop-up vaccination clinics for individuals 5 years of age and older during the week of Sept. 12-17. 

Beginning the week of Sept. 12, the Health Department will be offering the updated boosters from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna for those 12 and older who have not been vaccinated in the last two months at its pop-up clinics. 

A COVID-19 updated booster event will be held on Sept. 24 at Kickapoo High School, 3710 S. Jefferson Ave., from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. for those eligible. Appointments are required for this event and can be made at vaccine417.com or by calling the COVID-19 call center at 417-874-1211. 

Westside Public Health Center (660 S. Scenic) will be closed the week of Sept. 12-17 and will begin offering updated boosters the week of Sept. 19. To accommodate demand, COVID-19 vaccines and boosters will be by appointment only at Westside Public Health Center through the month of September. To make an appointment, please call 417-874-1211 or visit vaccine417.com. 

Individuals who receive a primary (first or second) dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or their first booster shot at a Health Department clinic will receive a $50 gift card while supplies last.
