COVID VACCINE INFORMATION
Update: January 15, 2021

Although initial tiers within Phase 1B are being activated today, there are currently not enough vaccines for everyone included in these groups. As additional supplies arrive, this activation will allow for the greatest vaccine coverage where it is most needed. It will also allow vaccinators and organizations to continue planning effectively for future tiers and phases.

Individuals in Phase 1B – Tier 2 should contact their local pharmacy or health care provider or visit MOStopsCovid.com to learn when vaccines may be available and how to receive them. Individuals in Phase 1A and Phase 1B – Tier 1 should work through their employer and/or association to access the vaccine. 

A list of vaccinators and regional vaccine implementation teams will be made available at www.MOstopsCovid.com on January 15.

RELAXED STAY-AT-HOME RESTRICTIONS

Guidance for COVID-19 High Risk Populations according to DHSS and the CDC

According the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), individuals at higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19 infections need to take extra precautions even as places begin to re-open. Those needing to take extra precautions include: people 65 and older and people with underlying medical conditions.

It is imperative that you take extra precautions as your community re-opens, including:

  • Stay at home as much as possible if you fit into one or more of the high-risk categories or you have a moderate to severe underlying condition or it is not well controlled.
  • Avoid people who are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19, including family members.
  • Continue to take your medications as prescribed and work to keep underlying medical conditions controlled.
  • Seek ongoing and emergency care for any underlying medical conditions. Delayed care can result in more acute illness and poor outcomes.
  • Clean your hands often using soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
  • Avoid sharing personal household items such as cups, utensils, and towels.
  • Stock up on groceries and medical supplies—including prescription medications—to reduce the need to go out.
  • When you do venture out, maintain six feet of space between yourself and others as much as possible and wear a cloth face covering or surgical mask.

Visit the CDC’s Higher Risk Populations and Extra Precautions webpages to learn more about specific groups and targeted precautions. As we adapt to our “new normal” we all have a personal responsibility to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities and to protect ourselves, friends, and families.
