Members of the Visiting Nurses Association, National Guard, county employees and volunteers help administer the vaccine at the mass vaccination site in Ferguson Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2021. In addition to the mass vaccination site at the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College, additional vaccination sites are open in the Mehlville, Affton and Eureka fire protection districts, which began administering vaccines to eligible members of the public who had appointments Thursday, Feb. 4.

The three mass vaccination events happening in the coming days in South County are pulling registrations from the county and state lists.

The county Department of Public Health recommends that residents register with multiple vaccinators to have the best chance at getting an appointment.

First, register with St. Louis County by visiting stlcorona.com. Click on the vaccine registration link.

Second, register on the state’s Vaccine Navigator site. Go to covidvaccine.mo.gov and click on “register now.”

Third, register on area hospital websites and contact local pharmacies.

If you do not have the internet and need assistance, the County Older Residents Program is offering help to sign up. Call 314-615-2660 and you will be assisted.
