ST. LOUIS (AP) — Officials say more than 172,000 people in St. Louis County have registered for the COVID-19 vaccine, but the local health department so far has only received 975 doses.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the county expects more doses to arrive Tuesday but the number it will receive was unclear.

A new phase of vaccinations began Monday in Missouri that allows older people and those with certain pre-existing conditions to be vaccinated.

Missouri health officials on Monday reported at least 11,983 COVID-19 cases in the past week.

That’s about 1,712 newly reported cases per day.

At least 6,256 deaths in Missouri have been attributed to the virus.
