IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: UPDATED COVID-19 VACCINE REGISTRATION OPPORTUNITIES
You may now register for notification of when a COVID-19 vaccine will be available to you, based on your age, health, and occupation. The categories for vaccine availability are shown in the graphic above.
As demand for the COVID-19 vaccines is expected to exceed the supply in the initial period following authorization, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) COVID-19 Vaccines Work Group developed a phased plan for allocating doses that the Department of Public Health is following. As production of the vaccine increases, the ACIP will recommend transition into additional phases.
If you choose to register with the County, you will fill out a survey on the St. Charles County Government website. After that information is received by the DPH, you will receive a message asking you about your eligibility for vaccine generally, and in which of the various phases you would fit. To get information about the county’s response, and to access the survey, follow this link. The registration survey is accessible in a red box marked “Register for COVID-19 Vaccine.”
Area hospitals which also have sign-up sites for vaccines are:

Where do we go from here? 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&
