The City of St. Louis Department of Health partnered with the St. Louis Cardinals to open a three-day COVID-19 vaccine clinic Wednesday, May 12, inside Busch Stadium’s Cardinals Club. Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and the Johnson & Johnson vaccines were available to eligible individuals. The clinic team administered 68 Pfizer and 75 Johnson & Johnson vaccines during the first day.
“This opportunity to partner with the Cardinals helps renew interest for those considering a COVID-19 vaccine,” says Dr. Fredrick Echols, acting director of health for the City of St. Louis. “Having a staple St. Louis organization stand behind the benefits of vaccinations helps the community come together to protect itself against SARS-COV2.”
The City of St. Louis Department of Health will hold two additional days of clinics at Busch Stadium. These clinics are scheduled for Thursday, May 13 from 9:00am-4:00pm, and Friday, May 14 from 9:00am-1:00pm. Appointment registration is encouraged and can be scheduled through an online portal; however, walk-ins will be accepted.
The St. Louis Cardinals organization has graciously donated ticket vouchers for individuals receiving a vaccine. These vouchers are good for two tickets to an upcoming home Cardinals game. Some restrictions do apply to the ticket vouchers.
Individuals interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine who cannot make this week’s clinics at Busch Stadium are encouraged to visit the Community Vaccination Clinic (CVC) at the Dome. It is open seven days a week, from 8:00am-6:00pm, and no appointment is necessary. This week, the times for Sunday, May 16 have been shortened to 8:00am-2:00pm, and Monday, May 17 is now 8:00am-4:00pm. Free parking for the Community Vaccination Clinic is available near Cole and 6th Streets. Shuttles will provide transportation from the parking areas to the clinic entrance. The Federal Emergency Management Agency sponsors the CVC.
The Department of Health asks all residents and visitors to St. Louis to continue following COVID-19 safety precautions, even after receiving the COVID-19 vaccines, to prevent further spread of the SARS-COV2 virus. These include wearing a facial covering, watching your distance from anyone who does not live with you, and washing your hands frequently.
