There will be a mass COVID 19 vaccination event taking place at the Lake of the Ozarks soon.

“We’ve been keeping a waiting list, a sign up list that we started on our website about three weeks ago…and we’ve had about 13,000 people sign up for that.”

Speaking with KB On the Ozarks This Morning, Lake Regional Hospital CEO Dane Henry says the event will happen on Sunday February 14th at School of the Osage, and it applies to people in the phase 1A and 1B tiers who are on that waiting list.

“Individuals who are 65 and older, who individuals who are under 65 and have certain health care conditions. The FDA is very very specific that these are the people we want to vaccinate next, because of their particular risk or vulnerability.”

Henry says the event is being co-managed by the Missouri National Guard.

Additional sites are also being put together with locations in nearby Henry and Phelps counties.

COVID-19 Vaccine Update

  • At this time, demand for the vaccine is still far greater than the supply that Lake Regional and other providers in the area have received from the state.
  • Lake Regional is working with the state in two ways:

1)      weekly requests, and

2)      National Guard mass event

 

  • First: weekly allotments from the state have allowed us to host 5 large vaccination events so far in January and February; we administered vaccine to 240 people at each event.
    Also, we are starting to receive some Moderna vaccine in our clinics.
    It’s important to note that in all of these instances we are pulling from our existing waiting list in order that individuals signed up. We will continue to use this approach until vaccine is readily available. Join the wait list at lakeregional.com/vaccine.
  • Second: Gov. Mike Parson has activated Missouri National Guard troops to assist with mass vaccination clinics for COVID-19 in each of the Missouri State Highway Patrol regions.
  • Lake Regional is now working alongside area emergency management agencies, public health, other health care providers, and fire and police officials to schedule a mass vaccination event in Osage Beach on Sunday, Feb. 14, at the School of the Osage. Vaccinations are planned for 2,400 area residents already on waiting lists at Lake Regional Health System and area health departments since January.
  • Vaccinations will be provided by appointment only. Only existing waiting lists will be used. (Please do not call us – we will call you.)
  • Unlike other mass vaccination events, the Osage Beach event will be held indoors and participants will be scheduled in advance for appointments. No walk-ins will be accepted. All of the agencies involved are firmly committed to providing a safe, orderly environment for participants.
  • List of participating agencies:

Camden County EMA

Camden County Health Department

Miller County Health Department

Morgan County Health Department

Lake Regional Health System

Central Ozarks Medical Center

Osage Beach Police Department

Osage Beach Fire Department

Lake Ozark Fire Department

Mid-County Fire Protection District

Governor Parson Announces Site Locations for Week Two of COVID-19 Mass Vaccinations

(JEFFERSON CITY, MO) – Today, Governor Mike Parson announced site locations for week two of the COVID-19 mass vaccination events in partnership with the Missouri National Guard, Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), and local health care systems.

“We are very pleased with how well the first week of mass vaccinations went, and we greatly appreciate the help of our Missouri National Guard and local partners in this effort,” Governor Parson said. “Although vaccine supply remains limited, we are happy to announce locations for the second week of mass vaccination events so that all eligible Missourians have an opportunity to explore additional avenues in receiving a vaccine.”

During a recent briefing at the State Capitol, Governor Parson announced that mass vaccination sites would be established in each of the nine Highway Patrol regions by the end of January. The first week of mass vaccination events took place last weekend with nearly 20,000 Missourians receiving an initial COVID-19 vaccine dose.

In total, there will be 27 separate mass vaccination events hosted by the state. The National Guard and DHSS vaccination teams will return to each site after 21 days to administer second dose vaccinations.

In addition to these mass vaccination events, DHSS recently announced partnerships with selected hospitals in each region of the state to support high throughput vaccine distribution.

The state is committing approximately 53 percent of weekly vaccine allocations to the selected hospitals and 23 percent to the regional mass vaccination events. The remaining 24 percent will go to local public health agencies, federally qualified health centers, and other enrolled community providers.

Please note that high throughput hospitals and other private providers may host their own vaccination events, but these events are not operated by the Missouri National Guard or DHSS. Information regarding vaccination events outside of those listed above must come directly from the host providers. 

To date, providers throughout the state have administered more than 533,660 doses of COVID-19 vaccines. Missourians are encouraged to visit MOStopsCOVID.com to view the latest vaccine updates, find out when they are eligible for the vaccine, and locate available vaccinators in their area.
