PRESS RELEASE FROM LAKE REGIONAL HEALTH SYSTEM

Lake Area Agencies Postpone Mass Vaccine Event

OSAGE BEACH, Mo. — Due to an extreme weather forecast, the Missouri National Guard Mass Vaccination event at School of the Osage is being postponed from Feb. 14 to March 7. In addition, the second-dose clinic is being postponed to April 11. All those who have an appointment will be called and offered a new appointment either on March 7 or an earlier date.

“Our priority is to provide vaccinations safely to our community, so we support our local health departments in this decision to postpone the mass vaccination event,” said Dane W. Henry, FACHE, CEO of Lake Regional Health System. “All of the organizers are committed to providing new appointments to everyone who was on the schedule for the Feb. 14 event. We will be calling them to provide their new date and time and, for some, a new local location.”

Overall, demand for COVID-19 vaccination is still far greater than the supply providers in the area have received from the state. Lake Regional and other local health care agencies encourage people to register on the Missouri Vaccine Navigator at https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/navigator. They may also register by calling 877-435-8411.
