ST. LOUIS COUNTY ( – Walk-up vaccinations will be available in University City two times this week, St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page announced Monday.

Vaccinators will be giving the shot on Monday from noon to 6 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Florissant Valley Community College. From 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday and Thursday people will be able to walk up to the Heman Park Community Center at 975 Pennsylvania Avenue in University City and receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Page said they plan to administer 500 doses of the vaccine on each of the mornings.

How long will coronavirus vaccines protect people?

Doctors are worried that coronavirus may end up being like influenza, which requires a new vaccine every year both because the circulating strains mutate fast and because immunity from the vaccine wears off quickly.

“This is only our latest attempt to break down barriers to getting vaccinated,” he added. “Our focus on equity and serving our most vulnerable populations has led us to create many different kinds of opportunities for County residents to get vaccinated."
