The Springfield-Greene County Health Department, Missouri State University and area partners are excited to provide COVID-19 vaccine to individuals during the Mega Vaccine Event at Hammons Student Center on the Missouri State campus on April 8-9.

The vaccine provided will be the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The event and vaccine are free and open to Missouri residents ages 18 and up.

Walk-ins will be welcome, but registration is strongly encouraged.

The Health Department encourages all individuals to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect yourselves and your loved ones, even if you have already had COVID-19. This is especially important as variants of the virus continue to surge in some states. The sooner that individuals in our community get vaccinated and continue to follow guidance, the sooner we will be able to lift restrictions and return to a sense of normalcy. Don’t Wait! Vaccinate!
