SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– The Springfield-Greene County Health Department announced a partnership with the Missouri National Guard. Six Adaptive Vaccination Teams (AVTs) have been deployed to Region D to assist in COVID-19 vaccination efforts.

The teams will expand the Health Department’s capacity and allow more opportunities for people to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The AVT will hold vaccination clinics in areas with lower vaccination rates or in locations where they can reach unvaccinated individuals.

According to a press release, the partnership will increase capacity at the vaccination clinic in partnership with Jordan Valley Community Health Center.

Groups interested in hosting a one-time or recurring COVID-19 vaccination clinic can contact the Health Department by calling 417-874-1211.
