Governor Announces Missouri National Guard To Scale Back COVID-19 Vaccine Support

Use of the Missouri National Guard will be sacaled back for COVID-19 vaccine support. Governor Mike Parson said the move comes as demand for the COVID-19 vaccine has significantly decreased. Parson added that Missouri is in a good place on the vaccine front, and that is thanks in large part to the tireless efforts of our National Guard members to get vaccines into the arms of Missourians. In addition, data shows that 80 percent of Missourians have access to a COVID-19 vaccine within a five mile radius of where they reside.The drawdown of National Guard involvement at mass vaccination site locations is set to be completed by June 1st.
