Second mass COVID-19 vaccine clinic planned for Arrowhead Stadium

JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Governor Mike Parson says the state plans to hold a second mass vaccination clinic at Arrowhead Stadium.

The news came during a press conference on Thursday afternoon. Parson didn’t release specific date or time details, but did admit the clinic would be held later that month.

“We’ll be back in Kansas City. I’m assuming we’ll be right back at Arrowhead. We know it was a great success. We’ll be back as scheduled, but I would say we’ll definitely be there in April, ”said Parson.

The first mass hospital in Arrowhead in March vaccinated nearly 8,000 people over two days.

Mass vaccination centers are also happening in St. Louis and Springfield as the state works to vaccinate thousands of people who are still waiting for a COVID-19 shot.

Parson said he expected vaccination appointments to open by the end of the month.

“I think by the end of April you will literally be looking in many places for people to be vaccinated, or you will take them to the local level where you don’t see these mass vaccines, or at these vaccination clinics you can go to the doctor, you can go to a pharmacy, a health clinic and the earlier we get there, the better, ”said Parson.
