Not enough Covid vaccines in Missouri

(Hillsboro) The distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine has been moving slowly across the entire state of Missouri. Jefferson County Health Department Director Kelley Vollmar says it’s certainly a state-wide issue.

The Jefferson County Health Department will become a vaccination location for those to receive the shot, but again, the supply chain to Missouri has been very slow.

Missouri Governor Mike Parson has activated the Missouri National Guard to assist at mass COVID-19 vaccination and targeted vaccination sites. Parson said the Missouri National Guard will also be working with local health agencies to help with data backlogs.
