Mass COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Show Me Center

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - Another mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be taking place at the Show Me Center on Friday, January 29.

They will be vaccinating individuals who are at high risk and already have scheduled appointments.

As of Friday morning, the health center said the appointments are all full. If you don’t have an appointment, you will not be allowed in.

Cape Girardeau County is currently number one in Missouri for vaccination disbursement, and on Friday the Cape Girardeau County Public Health Center has teamed up with the Missouri National Guard to hold another clinic to vaccinate the public.

“We’re working very hard to make sure that people are getting vaccinated as quickly as possible,” said health center Public Information Officer Maria Davis. “So, we are working really closely with our partners and all vaccinators in our county.”

She said that’s the reason they are leading the way in vaccinations across the state.

“It’s important because we are building up that immunity and therefore, we expect to see less cases and less deaths and the severity of the disease,” said Davis.

She said that at the clinic, they will do the best they can to make your vaccination a smooth one.

“So, when you arrive there will be National Guard directing you where to park, those types of things and when you walk in the doors there will be people there to direct you to our check in point,” said Davis.

From there you will register and get your vaccine.

“Then there will be a 15-minute observation period where nurses will be observing you,” said Davis. “After your dose you can expect some side effects. Most people have has some symptoms afterwards. Sore arm, fatigue, possible fever. We just want to remind people, that those symptoms mean your immune system is responding.”

The vaccination clinic will be held at the Show Me Center on Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
