Stick-or-Treat to offer fall activities and COVID-19 shots


The event will be held Friday and Saturday at Fremont Elementary

Halloween is almost here, and the Springfield-Greene County Health Department is taking advantage of it to try to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19.

It’s partnering with Community Partnership of the Ozarks, Community Foundation of the Ozarks and Springfield Public Schools to offer $50 gift cards to those who receive a first or second dose of the vaccine at a fall festival.

Stick-or-Treat will be held this Friday, October 22, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, October 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fremont Elementary, 2814 N. Fremont in Springfield.

Those who get vaccinated at the event will be entered into a drawing for $5000.

Stick-or-Treat will also offer resources and services, including free groceries, health screenings, immigration services and help finding employment. Kids can trick or treat, decorate pumpkins and more.
