The city of St. Joseph is partnering with Mosaic and the Region H Healthcare coalition to provide a coordinated effort on the vaccine rollout to our community members. Details regarding the vaccination process and how to register will be released soon. Information will be available on our website, social media, cable channel 19 and to the media.
On Thursday, January 13, Governor Parson announced activation of the first tier of Phase 1B of Missouri’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan. The expansion includes law enforcement, fire service and public health professionals, among others. Another tier, Tier 2 of Phase 1B, which focuses on protecting those who are at increased risk for severe illness, including individuals 65 years of age and older and any adult with specific health conditions as outlined by the state will be activated on Monday, January 18.
Our partnership is committed to ensure individuals who want the vaccine will have the ability to receive the vaccine in our region. We’re excited to partner with these organizations to channel our resources into beating this virus, once and for all. In the meantime, wear your masks, wash your hands and continue social distancing. Watch for details to be released soon!
