Bates County COVID-19 Vaccine Update

January 18, 2021
COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Although the state of Missouri has announced that it will proceed to Phase 1B for high risk individuals as of today, the SUPPLY is still an issue. Both Bates County Health Center & Bates County Memorial Hospital have signed up to be a vaccine locations and have ordered vaccine, but we do not know when it will arrive.

Neither facility have the appropriate, ultra-cold storage for the Pfizer vaccine, and are waiting for our orders of the Moderna vaccine - like most rural areas - that only require refrigeration.

BCHC will announce via Facebook and local media when we receive vaccine and start accepting appointments, until that time we are not making a waiting list.
Thank you!
