SSM Health patients to begin receiving the COVID-19 vaccine

News

ST. LOUIS – Beginning Monday, Jan. 25 at 10 a.m., the SSM Health Medical Group will begin administering COVID-19 vaccines to their most at-risk patients.

SSM Health said they are reaching out to their patients with a tiered system, beginning with patients 75 years of age or older who already have an SSM Health primary care physician.

More patients in the Phase 1B-2 group, who are eligible for the vaccine by the State of Missouri will be added to the vaccine schedule as it becomes available.

Patients will receive an invitation online through MyChart and can schedule an appointment once they receive the invitation.

SSM Health patients who do not have a MyChart account can sign up for one at mychart.ssmhc.com.

For those who are not SSM patients, but would like to be notified when they become eligible for vaccination visit ssmhealth.com/covidvaccine.

There are five vaccination clinics in all.

All vaccinations are done by appointment only and walk-ins are not accepted.

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

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.
