Vaccinations to be administered at designated MU Health Care clinics and pharmacies

MU Health Care will no longer offer first-dose COVID-19 vaccinations at Faurot Field as it shifts vaccine administration to select clinic and pharmacy locations. Second-dose clinics already scheduled for Faurot Field will not be affected.

MU Health Care has administered more than 70,000 vaccine doses at Faurot Field since being designated as one of the region’s high-throughput vaccination sites. Instead of offering large, centralized vaccination events moving forward, MU Health Care will instead provide the COVID-19 vaccine at select clinics and pharmacies beginning on Tuesday, June 8. The final second-dose clinic at Faurot Field is scheduled for Thursday, June 10.

“While we’ve made tremendous progress with vaccinations, there are still a lot of people who have not yet been vaccinated,” said MU Health Care vaccine co-chair and family medicine physician Laura Morris, MD. “Moving the vaccinations to clinics and pharmacies will provide more flexibility and convenience for patients as we continue to increase our vaccination percentage.”

MU Health Care will offer vaccinations at different locations Tuesdays through Fridays:

  • Tuesdays 8 a.m. until 12 p.m.
    • South Providence Medical Building, 551 E Southampton Dr., Columbia
  • Wednesdays 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
    • Mizzou Pharmacy-Smiley Lane, 2325 Smiley Lane, Columbia
  • Thursdays 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
    • Mizzou Pharmacy-Battle Avenue, 7115 E St. Charles Rd., Columbia
  • Fridays 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
    • Fulton Family Health, 2613 Fairway Dr., Suite C, Fulton

You do not need to be an MU Health Care patient to receive a vaccination, which is provided with no out-of-pocket costs. Vaccinations are by appointment only and are available to any Missouri adult. People age 12 and older can get the Pfizer vaccine, while Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available to people ages 18 and older. Patients younger than 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the vaccine consent form.

Those interested in receiving a vaccine can call our COVID-19 vaccine call center at 573-771-CARE (2273). The call center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
