If you go out of state (TN or AR) to get testing done, it may not get reported to MO for a couple of weeks. It would be helpful if you could give us a call and self report it to us. We would need you to get a copy of your positive lab and either email it or fax it to the health department. For more info on this give us a call at 573-748-5541.

Why should I get vaccinated?
Getting the COVID-19 vaccine not only helps protect you, but also those around you who are not yet eligible to get the vaccine or are extra-vulnerable. By doing so, you’re performing an act of service for your community and freeing up health care resources for those in need with other health conditions.

Is the vaccine safe?
Yes! The vaccine is safe and more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19 after two doses*. When you receive your first dose, we will schedule your appointment for the second dose. It is absolutely necessary that you receive both doses. The COVID-19 vaccine cannot give you COVID-19.
To check availability and schedule an appointment, visit: www.walmart.com/COVIDvaccine and www.samsclub.com/covid.
Before scheduling an appointment, please verify your eligibility through your State Health Department's website.
