"Crowd Sourced" Vaccine Information

With limited vaccines available through state distribution, and less-than- optimal distribution based on local populations, some vaccine opportunities can be identified both within and outside St. Charles County through creative internet searching and tapping into social media. This depends frequently on being in the right place at the right time, as when new appointments open, they are snapped up very quickly, sometimes in a matter of minutes.

  • Walgreens and Walmart are having intermittent vaccine availability across the state, and provide search options on their websites, after you have created an account with them.

  • “Medicine Shoppe” franchises have had availability, and can be identified by Googling “Medicine Shoppe” and a town name, and then going the store’s website or making a phone call.

  • Find the FaceBook pages of surrounding county Health Departments, ”like” them and follow them – if they are having vaccination events and expect to have left-over vaccines, they have used FaceBook to make a last-minute announcement.

  • Twitter -  if you are an agile Twitter-user.

  • FaceBook help group - for those demographic groups that have been disproportionately affected by COVID19, and those that are confronting challenges - Socioeconomic, Geographical/transportation-based, Language-based, Technology-based, Disability/accessibility-based, schedule coinciding with appointment times, no time to look for appointments, post vaccine recuperation time – financial burden if can’t go to work. If any of these apply to you, contact The Missouri Vaccine Equity Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/142158124434444/

  • For those who need or prefer to schedule by phone - St. Louis Public Radio has a hotline to help with scheduling an appointment for vaccination. Call 314-516-6430 and select your geographic area (STL City, STL County, St. Charles, Jefferson, Lincoln, Franklin, Warren, Metro East, & Polk). They will give you numbers to call to schedule a vaccine appointment in your area.

Vaccine Navigator

Because we are unsure how many vaccines we will receive and when, we encourage you to go to the Missouri Vaccine Navigator or call the state’s COVID-19 hotline at 877-435-8411 for assistance in connecting with additional avenues in which to receive a vaccine.

Missouri's Mass Vaccination Event Map

This map shows Missouri by region, with vaccinators identified, and scheduled mass events where available. Per Mo.gov: “The purpose of the mass vaccination sites is to provide an additional vaccination source for eligible Missourians that may otherwise have a hard time receiving a vaccine. Hospitals, pharmacies, and local public health agencies may host other events in your area.”

As of February 4, 2021, the St. Charles County Department of Public Health (DPH) is authorized by the State to administer COVID-19 vaccine to:
 

Phase 1A
Phase 1B - Tier 1
Phase 1B - Tier 2
 
When your phase is reached and enough vaccine has been allocated to the DPH, you will receive an email or automated voice message telling you that you can schedule an appointment for a vaccine.

 

Please check your email (inbox and spam folders) and phone messages daily for notification. It is important for you to understand that appointment time slots are limited. Respond quickly. The message will include information about the appointment, the vaccine administered, and how to contact the DPH if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
 
Walgreens, CVS, Walmart and Sam’s Club are beginning to show intermittent vaccine availability, and provide search options on their websites.
 
Hospitals are not adhering strictly to the state phase guidelines, and may still be in earlier phases/tiers due to lack of vaccine supply. Area hospitals which have sign-up sites for vaccines are:
