During a Thursday afternoon press conference, Gov. Parson announced a boost to the state’s vaccine supply.

Missouri will receive 50,000 doses of the recently approved Johnson and Johnson, one shot, COVID-19 vaccine. 35,000 of the doses will be sent to individual providers across the state.

Gov. Parson emphasized the importance of the upcoming vaccine delivery. “This will allow local providers to determine the most appropriate use for a single dose option in their communities.”

5,000 of the doses will be sent to vaccination sites in Kansas City and St. Louis. The remaining 10,000 of the doses will be sent to regional mass vaccination events.
