First mass COVID vaccination site coming to St. Louis County – Register here

News

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Community College campus at Florissant Valley will be the first mass vaccination site in the area. Appointments will be required.

Vaccinations may begin as soon as next week. The pace of vaccine distribution depends a lot on supply. There is not a lot of vaccine to go around right now.

St. Louis County Department of Public Health said the majority of people who have pre-registered fall into the 1B Tier 2 category which includes those 65 and older and adults 18-65 with high-risk medical conditions.

You can pre-register through STLCorona.com. You can also email dphcovidvaccine@stlouisco.com to sign up. Call 314-615-2660 to help make a registration if you do not have a computer.

The pre-registration process allows for people to be contacted quickly when there is a supply of COVID vaccine and when it is a particular person’s turn to receive the vaccine.

St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page made the announcement this morning. Ferguson Mayor Ella Jones and St. Louis Community College Chancellor Dr. Jeff Pittman also spoke during the press conference at St. Louis Community College’s Florissant Valley campus.

More than 318,000 people have pre-registered for the COVID vaccine in St. Louis County, which is approximately one-third of St. Louis County’s population. This number includes people that may be residents of other counties but have chosen to register for the vaccine in St. Louis County.

The Department of Public Health has also been in contact with those who are homebound so that they can still get vaccinated.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
