If you live in the city of St. Louis and want to receive notifications of upcoming COVID-19 vaccination opportunities, there is a new website to sign up for updates.
Similar to the system announced earlier this week in St. Louis County, the city’s Department of Health website allows you to enter some information about yourself and sign up to be notified when a vaccine becomes available. They will be added to the Department of Health’s contact list and they will contact you when it is time for your vaccine.
In an announcement from St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson on Facebook yesterday, she warns that it may be a while before vaccines are available to the general public.
“It is important for all of us to have realistic expectations of this multi-stage process. Depending on which tier you fall into, it may take a while before you receive a notification from the health department.
Please keep in mind that both the range of # COVID19 vaccines available and the groups of people who are eligible for vaccination are currently subject to significant restrictions. The Department of Health will follow the gradual adoption guidelines established by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. ”
Krewson also says, “The health department recommends that you should do this if you have the opportunity to get vaccinated before you hear from them.” So if your employer has vaccinations in your office or building, roll up your sleeve instead of waiting for town.
If you are unsure how to answer some of the survey questions or need more information on the registration process, you can email [email protected] with any questions.
