The City of St. Louis Department of Health returned to Carpenter’s Hall in South City Saturday to administer 1,674 COVID-19 vaccine doses. (212 second doses of Pfizer and 1,462 first doses of Moderna). High demand for the COVID-19 vaccines led to a large turnout for the invite-only event.
“At this time, we all must remain conscious of the eligibility requirements established and adhere to them,” says Dr. Fredrick Echols, acting director of health for the City of St. Louis Department of Health. “This is why it is critical for residents to pre-register for notifications to assist us with inviting individuals at the correct time, to assist the Department of Health with providing a pleasant vaccine experience during our clinics.”
Invited individuals had previously registered through the City’s vaccine notification survey and were identified as currently eligible based on their survey responses. The Department of Health also worked with community partners to vaccinate at-risk populations, including the elderly who need transportation assistance, those with functional needs, and members of the Vietnamese and Hispanic Latin-X populations.
The vaccination notification survey continues to serve as the Department of Health’s source to invite eligible individuals for vaccine distribution clinics. If you have completed the survey, you do not need to complete it again. If you previously filled it out and have secured your vaccinations through another agency, you may remove yourself from the list by emailing email@example.com or calling 314-657-1499. Please be sure you include your name and the email address you used to complete the survey.
