LEWIS COUNTY, Mo. (WGEM) -- More Missourians now have their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine after a mass vaccination clinic in Canton, Missouri.
Lewis county agencies and Missouri national guard members administered vaccines and directed traffic.
Region-B Officer in Charge, Rhonda Brown said they have 2,200 Moderna doses and hope to vaccinate at least 2,000 people.
"It's important for us to be here because we like to help support our local communities, we like to volunteer anyway we can, to help the state of Missouri," Brown said.
Nancy Piper, has COPD, takes care of her 94-year-old mother, and is a care giver to an 81-year-old with underlying health conditions.
"For my own protection, because I do have the COPD and I do not want to infect my mother or my friend. You know that would be really bad because they're so much older and very high risk," Piper said.
The clinic will run until 7p.m. February 23, 2021, at the Caldwell Building outside of Canton, Missouri on Mo Hwy 16.
You must meet eligibility requirements in Phase 1-A, Phase 1-B, Tier 1 and 2 and live in Missouri.
