Multiple locations across Columbia to offer COVID-19 booster shot

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

Multiple locations across Mid-Missouri are offering a COVID-19 booster shot to all Missourians at least 18-years-old, who were made eligible on Friday.

Fully vaccinated adults are eligible for a booster shoot at least six months after getting a two-dose vaccine from Moderna or Pfizer and just two months after getting Johnson & Johnson's one-dose vaccine.

According to the Columbia/Boone County Health Department, eligible Missourians can mix and match booster doses, even if the booster shot is different than the original dose.

Columbia's COVID-19 vaccine website has a list of locations offering third dose shots for eligible Missourians.

Hy-vee and Walmart both have appointment times available to be scheduled online for Saturday and Sunday.

The following week, more locations show available time slots including CVS and Gerbes, both of which can be scheduled online.

MU Health Care also shows over 150 appointments available for a booster dose clinic scheduled on Nov. 30.

This comes after The University of Missouri announced on Thursday that the COVID-19 vaccine would be required for most employees.

According to the state's COVID-19 dashboard, 561,836 Missourians have already received their third dose shots.

    “They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but against hospitalization and to some extent death, which is starting to now involve all age groups. It isn’t just the elderly”.

      1. Abundant evidence they are ineffective (Israel, Gibraltar). No long term testing to insure they’re the least bit safe. The worst adverse event record ever allowed.
