Those scheduled to receive second Pfizer dose Friday are not affected
Because of weather-related vaccine shipping delays, MU Health Care is now postponing vaccinations for those scheduled to receive their initial dose of the Moderna vaccine on Friday, Feb. 19, and Sunday, Feb. 21 at the Faurot Field vaccination site.
MU Health Care has not yet received the allocation of 4,000 doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine that was expected this week.
“We are still awaiting confirmation on when the Moderna shipment will arrive, so we will wait to reschedule those signed up for Friday and Sunday until we know for sure when to expect those doses,” said Brad Myers, MU Health Care Director of Pharmacy and Laboratory Services. “Those with appointments this week should know we will reach out to reschedule their appointment to ensure they receive the vaccine.”
Those scheduled to receive a second Pfizer dose on Friday, Feb. 19, will be able to receive their vaccination as scheduled. Those are not affected by the shipment delay.
MU Health Care has partnered with Boone Health and Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services on an online survey at muhealth.org/form/covid-vaccine-survey where people can sign up to be notified when COVID-19 vaccine will be available to them. It’s available for patients and non-patients. People only need to fill out the form once to be notified of appointment availability. Those who have questions or need help filling out the form 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.
MU Health Care’s vaccination site at the Walsworth Family Columns Club at MU's football stadium offers the vaccine by appointment only and is designed to allow appropriate spacing, efficient patient flow and minimal wait times. Learn more at muhealth.org/our-stories/how-do-i-get-covid-19-vaccine.
