SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Job seekers can apply for a job while getting their vaccine at the “Get a Shot, Get a Job” event in Springfield on Wednesday, June 9.
The Missouri Job Center partnered with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department to get 37 local employers at “Get a Shot, Get a Job.” Bass Pro, Costco, Mama Jeans and Mercy Hospital will be at the event looking to hire.
If you don’t need a job, vaccinations will be open to the public. Anyone can walk in and get a shot without setting up an appointment.
Both the Pfizer and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be offered to those wishing to be vaccinated. A person as young as 12-years-old can receive the Pfizer vaccine as long as a parent or guardian is present.
“Get a Shot, Get a Job” will be happening rain or shine at the Missouri Job Center from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 2900 E. Sunshine in Springfield.
Arc of The Ozarks will serve coffee and doughnuts out of its food truck at the event.
For questions about the vaccine, call the Springfield-Greene County Health Department’s COVID-19 hotline at 417-874-1211.
