(Jefferson City) Governor Mike Parson’s administration is hiring a newly formed organization aimed at boosting Missouri’s stagnant COVID-19 vaccination rate.

The two-and-a-half-million-dollar contract with the Missouri Immunization Coalition is the latest attempt by the administration to jumpstart vaccinations in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The hiring of the Columbia-based organization comes as Missouri’s vaccination rate has remained at 56 percent.
