COVID-19 vaccination clinic returns to Metro transit center

DOWNTOWN – Vaccinations against COVID-19 are being offered Thursday, Oct. 28, at the Civic Center Transit Center, at 14th and Clark streets in downtown St. Louis, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments are not required.

The vaccine being offered at this event is the one made by Pfizer.  

This event is a followup to one held at the transit center on Oct. 7, when nearly 100 people got first doses. Thursday’s clinic is primarily a second dose event for those people, but anyone who wants a first dose can get one, and booster doses will also be available for people who are eligible.

Any city resident getting a first dose will receive a $100 gift card on site.

“It’s important that we think creatively to make COVID-19 vaccines as accessible as possible to reach our  residents where they are, both physically and mentally,” said Dr. Mati Hlatshwayo Davis, the city’s health director. “Busy community meeting places like the Civic Center Transit Center are perfect examples of thinking outside the box. With 14 MetroBus routes and the MetroLink serving this  transit hub, it’s an ideal location for a walk-up clinic for transit-dependent residents.”  

The vaccine being offered at this event is the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.  

The next available Health Department vaccination clinic will be Oct. 29 at Central Baptist, 2842 Washington Avenue, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Vaccination against COVID-19 remains the most effective way to prevent serious illness, hospitalization,  and death from the virus. Updates on city vaccination clinics can be found on the health department’s webpage.
