Fire Stations Hosting Additional Fun Day And Vaccine Clinics


With COVID-19 cases rising in Greene County and the vaccination rate slowly creeping up, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department is continuing to work to make the shots more easily accessible to the public.

It’s partnering with the Springfield Fire Department and the International Association of Firefighters Local 152 to host two more Fire Station Fun Day and Vaccine Clinic events.  One will be held from 3 to 5 Monday afternoon, June 21, at Fire Station 1, 720 E. Grand, and from 3 to 5 Wednesday, June 30, at Fire Station 5, 2750 W. Kearney.

While parents get their vaccines, children can interact with firefighters, see a fire truck up close and more.

Find out more about those and other COVID-19 vaccine opportunities at or call (417) 874-1211.
