COVID-19 Vaccines To Be Offered In Several Greene County Locations This Week

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is reminding area residents of COVID-19 vaccine opportunities in the county. COVID-19 case numbers among unvaccinated individuals are on the rise, according to public health officials in a news release.

They encourage anyone 12 and older to get a vaccine as soon as possible.

As of Friday, the seven-day rolling average for new cases was 46.  That’s a 40 percent increase over the past week.  According to data collected in patient interviews, 97 percent of those who tested positive in Greene County had not been fully vaccinated.

There were 87 reported COVID-19 cases in Greene County last Thursday, the most in one day since February 4.

Monday, June 7, vaccines are available from 8 a.m. to noon at the Springfield-Branson National Airport and at John B. Hughes Apartments, 2100 N. Clifton in Springfield, from 4 to 5.
