Multiple vaccine clinics trying to fill open appointments Wednesday


The Moniteau County Health Center has more unfilled appointments on its second day of a mass vaccination clinic.

The clinic runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the United Church of Christ (101 N Oak St.) in California, Missouri..

According to a Facebook post, the clinic will be allowing walk-in appointments from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. then again from 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m.

Moniteau County health officials said they have the capacity to give 1,100 doses each day of the clinic.

Tuesday, the health center said it was able to administer just over half of that, giving 589 doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

The clinic also posted to its Facebook Tuesday after four extra doses remained following the event. Health officials said they were able to administer the doses on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Wednesday's clinic is open to all eligible Missourians.

Missouri recently launched Phase 2 of its vaccine plan, giving nearly 900,000 additional residents eligibility.

Those newly eligible include:

  • Commercial Facilities Sector
  • Critical Manufacturing
  • Construction Sector
  • Defense Industrial Base
  • Financial Services
  • Food and Agriculture Sector 2 (includes restaurant employees)
  • Government
  • Disproportionately Affected Populations
  • Homeless

Moniteau is not the only mid-Missouri county trying to fill open appointments. Johnson County Community Health Services posted to Facebook Tuesday that it was also accepting on-site registration at its vaccine clinic.

The organization said "limited appointments" are still available until 4 p.m. Wednesday, or until the last dose is administered. The event is located at Northside Christian Church in Warrensburg, Missouri.
