MU Health Care expects a delivery of 4,000 doses of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine this week and will open up the same number of appointment slots at the Walsworth Family Columns Club vaccination site at MU’s football stadium.
The state of Missouri designated MU Health Care as one of three vaccination sites in the region to receive a vaccine allocation intended to provide high-volume community vaccinations. This week’s appointments will be scheduled between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4, through Saturday, Feb. 6.
Because vaccine demand is far outpacing supply, MU Health Care is using an online survey at muhealth.org to determine interest and eligibility for vaccination. The survey is open to anyone in the community, not just MU Health Care patients.
Appointment invitations for this week will be sent to those who filled out the survey and self-identified as meeting eligibility criteria for Phase 1B Tier 2. Those who receive an appointment invitation will need to attest to their eligibility during the scheduling process, and MU Health Care staff will check photo identification during registration.
“We are excited to serve the state of Missouri to offer 4,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine to high-risk individuals this week,” said Stevan Whitt, MD, MU Health Care Chief Clinical Officer. “Our vaccination site at the football stadium provides an efficient, convenient and safe way for the public to receive the vaccine. We are honored to play a key role in the state’s public vaccination effort moving forward.”
Sign up to be notified
MU Health Care has launched an online survey at muhealth.org/form/covid-vaccine-survey, where people can sign up to be notified when a COVID-19 vaccine will be available to them. It’s available for patients and non-patients. People only need to fill out the form once to be notified of appointment availability. Those who have questions or need help filling out the form can call the COVID-19 vaccine call center at 573-771-CARE (2273). The call center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
