COVID-19 vaccine distribution has begun in our region, but the supply remains very limited.
When can I get the vaccine?
The State of Missouri has outlined a phased plan to determine eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine and prioritizes healthcare workers, first responders and those most at-risk.
The state is currently in Tier 2 of Phase 1B of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. For more information, visit: https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/.
However, vaccine supply has been extremely limited, and we understand many residents who qualify for Tier 2 of Phase 1B (high risk individuals and those 65 and older) are anxiously waiting for the opportunity to get vaccinated.
Where to get the vaccine
Residents in Blue Springs interested in the COVID-19 Vaccine can complete the Jackson County Health Department’s Vaccine Survey tool and the State of Missouri's Vaccine Navigator tool to ensure a spot in line as soon as the vaccine supply becomes available.
Additionally, those who qualify for Phases 1 and 2 Tiers A and B should check with their primary care providers and/or hospital system.
The state of Missouri is also offering regional mass vaccination events. Please check this page often for opportunities to register at a nearby event: https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/events/.
