It is now easier to make a vaccination appointment in St. Louis County, County Executive Sam Page announced Monday morning. Residents are now able to make appointments directly from the home page of the county’s website
This update comes as the state opens COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to all adults. Under the previous system, anyone who pre-registered for an appointment would have to wait until the county Department of Public Health determined them to be eligible and contacted them for scheduling. 
Now, anyone over the age of 16 who wishes to be vaccinated at a DPH vaccination site can visit and browse available locations and times.​ Appointments are available throughout the county, but appointments for the next month at the Mehlville Fire Protection District, Affton Fire Protection District and the Kennedy Recreation Center are taken. 
The St. Louis County Department of Public Health has now administered more than 100,000 vaccines to date.
DPH urges residents to make vaccination appointments and to continue to practice personal protective measures by wearing your mask in public, avoiding crowds, keeping your distance and washing your hands.
