JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missourians wanting to receive the COVID-19 vaccine now have another tool to help.

Gov. Mike Parson announced the launch of the Missouri Vaccine Navigator, a registry tool to assist Missourians in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

“Although vaccine supply nationwide is still quite limited, this registration process will help connect Missourians with more avenues to receive a vaccine,” Gov. Parson said. “This will not only provide support for Missouri citizens but also help our team determine where the greatest demands for vaccines exist throughout the state.”

The website allows those to register for a vaccine and complete a questionnaire to determine their eligibility based on Missouri’s priority phases. It will also remind registrants when it is time to schedule their second dose.

“A crucial part of this process is for people to follow up for the second dose in order for them to be fully vaccinated and protected against COVID-19,” said Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Director Dr. Randall Williams. “This system uses best practices to ensure patients and providers follow through with that second dose for the maximum amount of protection.”

The registrant will be notified when they becomes eligible and can then view and sign up for events in their area at that time.
