Another 929 Receive First Dose of COVID-19 Vaccine in Adair County

Over 900 people received the first dose of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Thursday at the Adair County Health Department’s drive through clinic at the NEMO Fairgrounds. Vaccines were administered to more people in the Phase 1 tiers as recommended by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. Jim LeBaron, Adair County Health Department administrator, said they are continuing to get the county’s most vulnerable citizens vaccinated as doses become available and will continue making requests for doses and to administer them to residents as quickly as possible in the tiers recommended. LeBaron added that there will be a regional vaccination drive-through in February targeting older adults. He said they’ve not yet been advised by the Department of Health and Senior Services about how to register for this event, but the health department let everyone know more as soon as they receive the details.
