SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – The Springfield-Greene County Health Department and Jordan Valley Community Health Center will offer COVID-19 vaccines to essential workers in Phase 1B – Tier 3 beginning Monday, March 15.
The Health Department and Jordan Valley Community Health Center will administer the vaccine at the Jordan Valley Community Health Center Vaccination Clinic every day next week with new opportunities being added regularly based on supply.
The hard work and collaborative efforts of our area’s vaccinators have allowed us to begin vaccinating essential workers on the first day the state has made them eligible. Nearly one in every 10 adults in Greene County are fully vaccinated, and vaccinating this new group marks the next major step toward reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
