The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services worked with Missouri’s Advisory Committee on Equitable COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution to compile the resources.
Most of the organizations involved in the program are providing transportation through funding received from the latest COVID-19 relief bill passed by Congress.
Anyone interested in finding transportation can do so on the Missouri COVID-19 vaccination website.
