Warrensburg, MO (January 29, 2021)—Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC) held its first COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Jan. 29, 2021. The clinic, hosted at Milestones, was a success and provided 443 Johnson County residents with the vaccine.
WMMC is following the Missouri COVID-19 Vaccination Phases and vaccines will be distributed according to the tiers of this plan. Currently, Missouri is in Phase 1B – Tier 1 and 2, prioritizing people over the age of 65, co-morbidities, and/or first responders.
“I’m truly proud of the hard work from our WMMC team and the entire community for their efforts to make this mass vaccine clinic possible in just a matter of days,” said Darinda J. Dick, CEO/President of WMMC. “The collaboration between organizations, including WMMC, Johnson County Community Health Services and all entities on the Johnson County COVID-19 Taskforce has been monumental. Special thanks to Milestone’s Barn for providing the venue.”
WMMC is excited for the coming collaborations with other organizations to hold many future clinics for our greater community.
WMMC is a part of the ongoing effort to get the vaccine to all who want it in the first 100 days of distribution. Community members can register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine based on current criteria and vaccine availability. Register at WMMC.com/Vaccine.
