COVID Vaccine Updates

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Department of Health and Senior Services has confirmed a COVID-19 vaccine could be in Missouri by Dec. 15, according to Jefferson City bureau reporter Emily Manley.

The vaccine arrival date in Missouri will depend on if the FDA approves Pfizer’s Emergency Use Authorization.

The first shipment will be around 50,000 doses.

“I think we are safe to say, if all goes as planned with Pfizer’s progress, Missouri hopes to see its first doses in the next 2-3 weeks,” Kelli Jones Director of Communications for Missouri Governor Mike Parson said.
