According to state data, Missouri received more vaccines this week than the past two weeks combined.

This week, the state received 7,540 doses of the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Moderna vaccineS. The prior week of June 1-6, the state received a fraction of the current weeks order, with 1,670 doses. The week of May 25, Missouri received 2,670 doses of the vaccine.

Even though this weeks shipment was an increase, it's still a significant drop from a little over a month ago when the state received 57,000 vaccines the last week of April.

According to the state vaccine dashboard, Missouri is giving out around 12,315 vaccines each day.

Recently, the White House announced President Biden's goal of having 70% of adults in the United States vaccinated with at least one dose by July 4.

So far, 52.9% of Missourians who are 18-years-old and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Based on calculations done by the ABC 17 News Team using census data and the average vaccination rate of 12,315 vaccines per day, it would take Missouri 67 days to reach the 70% vaccination rate. This would put Missouri meeting President Biden's goal in mid-August.

  1. I see there is STILL zero talk about the side effects. I have some other questions as well..
    1. How long was any experimental testing done, before it was used on human?
    2. Are there effective therapeutics against SARS-CoV2?
    3. How long has Dr. Fauci known about the benefits of HCQ
    4. Why hasn’t abc17 news even mention anything about a healthy immune system for 14 months?
    5. How effective are masks, of any type?

    These are six very good questions which need to be answered. Any answer within the narrative will be considered a lie.

    1. The media is too busy enjoying their multi-billion dollar COVID ad campaign to bother with asking these questions.

      The media used to be the watchdog of truth, investigating the powers that be, but not anymore. Now they are just the propaganda arm of those who want to have power and control over us.

      Resist! Power to the People.

  2. “President Biden’s goal of having 70% of adults in the United States vaccinated with at least one dose by July 4.”
    Since when did the preferences of a POTUS become Missouri health policy?
    Given the ever increasing rate of adverse events from these vaccines, more than 4000 dead so far, and the total lack of any long term testing at all, not to mention the usually Pharma friendly FDA has NOT approved them, the constant pressure from government, the Medical Industrial Complex, and corporate media to take a vaccine borders on criminal. Coercing people to participate in a medical experiment violates both US and international law. Encouraging it is immoral.
    These vaccines have already killed more people than any vaccine in history, and more than all other vaccines combined for at least the last 5 years. Many other vaccines were removed from the marker after causing as few as 50 deaths. So why do these get a pass?
