Sign up for St. Louis area COVID-19 vaccine appointment notifications here

News

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – More than 1.5 million people in the St. Louis area are now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine. The St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force is helping to coordinate the distribution of the medicine. They are trying to make it easier for everyone to make an appointment to get a shot by sharing the information about where to sign up for one.

People who can now get the vaccine include healthcare workers, first responders, and people over 65-years-old. Plus, others over the age of 40 with specific health conditions may also get a shot. The state of Missouri has a specific list of who is eligible here.

FOX 2 checked with several approved vaccination providers. Everyone we talked with says they are still waiting for word from state officials on when a vaccine shipment will be sent to them.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force commander Dr. Alex Garza is telling everyone to register with their health care providers or their county for the vaccine.

Register to get a vaccine through your local health department or regional health system. The local healthcare providers offering appointments for COVID-19 vaccine are listed below:

Healthcare Providers:

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.
