Now that the COVID 19 Vaccine has arrived in Missouri, a few front-line healthcare workers are getting the shot.

Officials at Mercy in Springfield delivered the state’s first administered shots to two nurses who’ve been caring for COVID patients since the pandemic started.

Those nurses are Wanda Brown and Tracy Hill, of which Hill stated the shot was “painless” indicating she “felt nothing at all.”

Other hospitals across the state are beginning to receive the vaccine as well.

As of Tuesday Morning, there was no word on when Lake Regional, Bothwell, Mercy in Lebanon, Capital Region or St. Mary’s hospitals would receive and administer their vaccines.
