KANSAS CITY, MO – St. Louisans interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccination now have the opportunity at a special 8-week Community Vaccination Center (CVC) opening at the Dome at America’s Center April 7.
The first step to getting a vaccine at the CVC is to register with the State of Missouri. This step is necessary even if you have signed up on other vaccine websites, such as those for the City of St. Louis or St. Louis County.
Persons can register with the State of Missouri one of two ways:
1. Go online to Vaccine Navigator (https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/navigator/) and fill out the required information;
2. By phone at (877) 435-8411.
The large-scale clinic has been set up by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at the request of Missouri Governor Mike Parson and with the support of the Biden administration. The goal of the site is to expand the rate of vaccinations in an efficient, effective, and equitable manner, with an explicit focus on making sure that communities with a high risk of COVID-19 exposure and infection are not left behind.
The St. Louis CVC will have the capacity to administer up to 3,000 COVID-19 vaccines per day, over the 8-week period from April 7-June 1.
Persons who need a reasonable accommodation at the site, such as those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, or who have access and functional needs, should register by calling the phone number, 877-435-8411. Those who speak a language other than English can register online by clicking on the “Translate” button at the top of the Vaccine Navigator page. Translation is also available for those who call the phone number to register.
In-person registrations will be taken at The Dome as well. However, persons are strongly encouraged to sign up in advance to reduce wait time on the day of the vaccination. Those without a pre-set appointment may have a longer wait to complete the full process so pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
The Community Vaccination Center is located at:
The Dome at America’s Center Entrance C, off Broadway & Cole 701 Convention Plaza St. Louis, MO 63101
Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., CDT, 7 days a week, until further notice.
