The City of St. Louis Department of Health completed a three-day clinic Friday co-sponsored by the St. Louis Cardinals, with a total of 707 COVID-19 vaccines administered at Busch Stadium. This includes 250 vaccines provided today (Friday) to eligible clients. The clinic comes one week before the St. Louis Cardinals, who are number one in the National League Central standings, take on the Chicago Cubs with an increased capacity for fans. 

“Thank you to everyone who attended the clinic and received a vaccination. It’s now important to continue to follow COVID-19 safety measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says Dr. Fredrick Echols, acting director of health for the City of St. Louis. “By continuing to be mindful of the measures we can all take, including social distancing, good hand hygiene, and wearing a facial covering when not vaccinated, we can protect ourselves and others from SARS-COV2.”

The Department of Health encourages all eligible residents to consider getting vaccinated to protect themselves and the community. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) continues its seven-day-a-week Community Vaccination Clinic (CVC) at the Dome through June 1. This weekend, the clinic has shortened hours on Sunday (8am-2pm) and Monday (8am-4pm) due to additional scheduled events. All other days the hours through June 1 are 8am-6pm. Free parking for the CVC is available near Cole and 6th Streets. Shuttles will provide transportation from the parking areas to the clinic entrance. 

The City of St. Louis Department of Health thanks the St. Louis Cardinals Organization for the use of its Cardinals Club, and for the donation of ticket vouchers to vaccine recipients to allow them to attend a future game during the 2021 season. The department also wishes to thank its numerous volunteers who take time out of their day to assist with the many roles of the vaccine administration process.
