St. Charles County moving to Phase 1B-Tier 3 to vaccinate those working in schools



ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – Those working in schools in St. Charles County will be eligible for the COVID vaccine in a matter of days.

St. Charles County is transitioning to Phase 1B-Tier 3 of the State of Missouri COVID vaccine distribution plan allowing teachers, school officials and school’s support staff to become eligible for the vaccine.

This transition will become effective on Monday, March 15. St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann confirmed the news Tuesday.

The county has points of distribution at five schools. They will use those locations to vaccinate anyone who works for a private or public school in St. Charles County.

“We will add additional PODs at businesses and organizations that are critical infrastructure entities outlined in Phase 1B, Tier 3,” St. Charles County Public Health Director Demetrius Cianci-Chapman said.

Ehlmann assured anyone who has been eligible for the vaccine in earlier tiers and has not gotten one yet that their time will come.

“I know it is difficult to wait, but we are following the state’s plan, as we have from the beginning of the pandemic, and will continue to do that in the most fair and equitable way possible,” Ehlmann said.

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.
