COVID Vaccination Plans Underway

  Hermann Area District Hospital/Southwest Medical Associates, in conjunction with other community partners, are finalizing plans for large scale weekend COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Hermann, MO.

  Vaccination will be BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, and our current goal is to vaccinate ~500 people per day. Our first vaccinations will be with the Pfizer vaccine and take place this weekend on 1/30 and 1/31.

  Missouri has authorized us to vaccinate people in Phase 1A, Phase 1B - Tier 1 and Phase 1B - Tier 2. This includes all individuals over 65 as well as many adults with chronic health conditions. See https://health.mo.gov/living/healthcondiseases/communicable/novel-coronavirus/pdf/so-vaccinedistribution-order.pdf for full list of eligible individuals.

  If you or someone you care for are in one of these groups, and are interested in being vaccinated, please go to https://forms.gle/GnYpmh3QoKmXr4qW9 and leave us your name and contact information.

  Like all organizations, we are being overwhelmed with people asking about vaccination. PLEASE do not call the hospital or clinics to sign up for vaccination. Any calls we do receive will be directed to this sign-up form.

  Once you have filled out the sign-up form, our dedicated staff will contact you to set up a vaccine appointment. We anticipate 975 doses arriving in the next few days, but we do not know exactly how much more vaccine we will receive or when. Please be patient with us as we work through the process of calling everyone.

  This will be a monumental undertaking and we thank all of the staff and volunteers for giving up their weekend and all patients in advance for their patience and understanding.
