Second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine available in St. Louis for those who took road trip for first dose

ST. LOUIS – You may have heard of people who drive a few hours to get their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Well maybe you can save some time on gasoline to get your second one.

Deanna Frazier, the Asst. The FEMA field officer said you could have your second Pfizer vaccine shot down at the FEMA clinic in downtown St. Louis even if you got the first dose elsewhere.

Starting today, all Missourians 16 and over are eligible for the COVID vaccine

Frazier says all you need to do is bring your COVID-19 vaccination card to the event.

The America’s Center event welcomes walk-in guests. You can register on site to receive the first or second shot.

The CDC says if you’re getting a vaccine that requires two doses, get your second shot as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, if necessary, your second dose can be given up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. You should receive the second dose no earlier than the recommended interval.

The event is conveniently located near bus and metro stations. There is also free parking at the event and shuttle buses that will take you right to the door to sign up.

The mass vaccination clinic in the dome will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the next eight weeks.

You can pre-register on the Missouri COVID Vaccine Navigator website.
