The City of St. Louis Department of Health vaccinated 1,297 individuals Sunday, the second day of a two-day clinic, to provide second-doses of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine to those who received the first dose 28 days ago. Saturday, 1,375 second doses of Moderna were administered.
“At a time when we see an increase in COVID-19 cases in the City of St. Louis, providing these vaccines to protect our community is crucial in the efforts to move us forward through this pandemic,” says Dr. Fredrick Echols, acting director of health for the City of St. Louis. “By receiving their second dose, these individuals are taking the necessary steps to protect themselves, their loved ones, and the community as a whole.”
Vaccinated individuals should continue to follow COVID-19 prevention measures to further reduce the risk of contracting SARS-COV2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Wearing a facial covering, washing your hands frequently, and watching your distance when around others who live outside of the household are steps one can take to protect themselves and their family.
