What do you need to know?

The FDA has approved Emergency Use Authorizations for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The federal government will be providing a limited amount of vaccines in 2020, with supplies increasing substantially in 2021. As a result, some groups may be recommended for vaccination first: healthcare, long-term care staff and residents, essential workers, high-risk residents and patients 65 and up. We are working right now to establish Regional Implementation Teams, as well as Vaccination Support Teams, to help you carry out vaccination efforts.

An effective vaccination plan relies on free or low-cost vaccinations. You may bill private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare, however an individual can not incur a fee for their vaccination. Uninsured Missourians will be able to receive the vaccination regardless of their health insurance status.
