THE COVID-19 VACCINE SITUATION CHANGES DAILY
Missouri now has a 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.”

Per St. Charles Co Dept of Public Health:
For questions about COVID-19 or assistance with registering to receive the COVID-19 vaccine,
please call the Information Hotline at 636-949-1899, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Mon-Fri.
Whatever phase you are in, you can sign up NOW to be placed in a virtual queue. We urge you to also sign up through your health care provider’s hospital affiliation (such as SSM, Mercy or BJC) so that you can receive a vaccination in the timeliest manner.
To get information about the county’s response, and to access the sign-up survey, follow this link. The registration survey is accessible in a red box marked “Register for COVID-19 Vaccine.”
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 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:

From the Missouri House Democratic Legislative Network (DLN):
Without remote testimony, and with in-person testimony still being a risk due to the pandemic, legislators aren’t hearing from constituents at the same rate. This particularly impacts committees where partner organizations in the past have been able to organize a room full of citizens to testify in support or in opposition to legislation. Right now bad legislation is able to move with little public testimony against it, and that makes the work harder for our electeds. Call Rep. Vescovo (573) 751-3607 and ask that EVERY committee room has remote testimony abilities so Missourians can safely testify. Share this with your networks, and when posting use the hashtags: #YouWorkForUs #moleg
This week we are asking for your help in the following calls to action:
1. Call Rep. Wallingford 573-751-1443 and ask that they support a clean Wayfair sales tax bill (HB 644) without any attached revenue cut.
2. Call your State Senator 573-269-3772! SB 26 is on the calendar for perfection this coming Monday, Feb. 15th. This dangerous bill would restrict our freedom to join together and demand justice for our communities, endangering our first amendment rights. You can find your senator here: FIND YOUR SENATOR and sign on here: ADD YOUR NAME TO THIS LETTER to stand against this bad legislation. Share this with your networks, and when posting use the hashtags: #YouWorkForUs #moleg
3. Call Gov. Parson (573) 751-3222 and demand he forgive the unemployment overpayments. Missourians across the state filed for assistance in good faith, because they needed help. They shouldn’t have additional struggles because the government made a clerical mistake. The Federal government has recommended that these be forgiven, and Gov. Parson has the power to do so.

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
From Indivisible: We have officially launched our new Indivisible Guide!
If you’re reading this, you’re part of that movement. Maybe you formed an Indivisible group. Maybe you showed up at a town hall, or a protest, or a congressional office. Maybe you knocked doors, raised money, or ran for office yourself. Whatever you did, you’re a part of history. Together, we’ve defeated Trump. Now, it’s time for us to defeat the forces that allowed him to rise—and that continue to threaten our democracy. Now, we have a short window to save our democracy. Getting it done depends on all of us, and this new Indivisible guide provides a blueprint. Get it here: https://indivisible.org/democracy-guide
AND THIS ISSUE STILL NEEDS OUR ATTENTION
Missouri's COVID-19 voting provisions expired on Dec. 31, 2020. This law allowed voters over 65 and those with certain chronic health conditions - such as diabetes or lung disease - to vote absentee, and allowed Missouri voters to cast ballots by mail. With upcoming municipal elections in early 2021, please join the Missouri Voter Protection Coalition's campaign to urge Missouri Governor Mike Parson to use his emergency authority to extend Missouri's COVID-19 safe voting provisions so that all Missourians can vote safely. LWV of Missouri and Metro St. Louis have signed on as signatories to the letter. Take Individual Action now by signing the petition to Governor Parson at: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/tell-gov-parson-to-extend-covid-voting-provisions?source=direct_link&
