CCHD releases info on COVID-19 vaccine availability

    Crawford County Health Department issued a press release on January 21 about the upcoming availability of COVID-19 vaccine.


    In it, the department noted, “The news of expanding COVID-19 vaccine eligibility is very exciting, and we are eagerly anticipating this next phase of response. However, this does not mean that vaccine is widely available yet.”
    The Crawford County Health Department is an approved COVID-19 vaccinator and has requested vaccine, but does not currently have vaccine available, nor do they have a guaranteed date that vaccine will become available.
    Individuals who qualify to receive vaccine in Phase 1A and 1B tier 1 and 2 may call the Crawford County Health Department to be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted when vaccine becomes available. To find out more about eligibility please visit the following website: https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/.
    There will be other sources of vaccine in Crawford County eventually as well. You can register for vaccine online at the following links:
    • Sinks Pharmacy: https://sinkspharmacy.com/
    • BJC: https://www.bjc.org/Coronavirus/Covid-19-Vaccines
    • Mercy: mercy.net/MoVaccine
    Filling out the form adds you to the queue; it does not mean you have an appointment to receive the vaccine. Appointments will be scheduled as vaccine allotment allows.
    The Crawford County Health Department will utilize the local newspaper and the Crawford County Commission Facebook page to share information about vaccine availability publicly. It will also utilize the Crawford County Rave Alert System and Cuba Alert system. You can register for these alerts via text message. For the City of Cuba, text 672-83 to CubaMO. For Crawford County, text 672-83 to CrawfordCo.
