COVID-19 Vaccinations at Ozarks Healthcare Scheduled to Take Place March 16-17
COVID-19 vaccination clinics will continue at Ozarks Healthcare this week. Those interested in receiving either their first or booster (second) dose of the vaccine should sign up through the Missouri Vaccine Navigator: https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/navigator/. If internet accessibility is an issue, the Navigator Hotline can be reached by calling 877-435-8411. As of today, Missouri is now vaccinating Phase 1A and all tiers of Phase 1B. Phase 1B - Tier 3, the latest tier to be activated, includes those in Missouri's critical infrastructure. For full tier definitions, visit: https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/priority/.
Vaccination clinics at Ozarks Healthcare will be held on the following dates:
• March 16 – First and second doses of the Moderna vaccine administered at Ozarks Healthcare (8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. - Parkway Center, Willard Hunter Classroom; second doses will be available to those who received their initial dose on February 16 or earlier)
• March 17 – First and second doses of the Moderna vaccine administered at Ozarks Healthcare (8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. - Parkway Center, Willard Hunter Classroom; second doses will be available to those who received their initial dose on February 17 or earlier)
Again, all individuals (whether you are receiving your first or second dose) are asked to register through the Navigator to attend. After registering, you will receive a patient ID number. You will be asked to present this number when you receive your vaccine. If you are returning for a second dose, please bring your vaccination card with you. Six weeks is approximately the latest time frame recommended to wait to receive your second dose.
Once future clinics are scheduled, more information will be shared. For updates, please watch Ozarks Healthcare's social media channels or visit https://www.ozarkshealthcare.com/.
