Opportunities for Vaccines in Adair County

Limited Moderna Vaccines Available During February
Last week, the State of Missouri announced that select hospitals, including Northeast Regional Medical Center, will be receiving weekly COVID-19 vaccine allocations through the month of February to assist with public vaccination efforts.
NRMC’s first delivery of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is an allocation of 100 first doses. Individuals 65 and older, and any adults with serious health issues, are eligible to register at this time. Individuals meeting the criteria can register providing their name, date of birth and telephone number via:
·Phone voice message: 660.785.1829 (660.785.1VAX)

·The hospital operator is not able to accept registrations.
Once you have submitted your appointment request, a hospital representative will reach out to you within 24 to 48 hours to schedule.
Future clinic dates are being scheduled through February. NRMC has not yet been told the number of doses that will be received in the coming weeks. Updates will be provided as additional vaccine is made available.

The Adair County Health Department is working with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Missouri National Guard and other health departments and health care providers in the region on a mass vaccination drive-through scheduled for Feb. 10, at the NEMO Fairgrounds. More than 2,000 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will be available that day.
