After weeks of sending too many vaccination doses to rural towns in Missouri that wouldn’t have a chance of using them all, Governor Mike Parson has finally decided to send some life-saving doses to the City of St. Louis.

The “mega vaccination event” will go down on March 25 and March 26 on the campus of St. Louis Community College at Forest Park (5600 Oakland Avenue). Mayor Lyda Krewson says the event will distribute “up to 3,000 doses a day of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (single shot).”



This large-scale event is being hosted in cooperation with the Missouri National Guard and the Missouri Department of Public Safety. Krewson says they’ll be working with the city Health Department to use “the state's existing Vaccine Navigator to identify eligible Missourians in activated phases who have previously registered and are awaiting vaccination.”

With this announcement, Governor Mike Parson also announced five other St. Louis-area vaccination events also scheduled for the end of the month.
