COVID-19 Vaccine Supply Starts to Outpace Demand in Missouri

Governor Parson predicted it, and now it appears the COVID-19 vaccine supply is beginning to be greater than the demand for shots.

This has raised fears among some health care providers of a possible renewed spike in cases.

The slowdown in vaccinations is occurring even with the recently-implemented policy allowing people as young as 16 to get the vaccine.

More than 2/3 of Missouri’s residents remain uninterested, with data showing inoculations of jus 32% statewide.

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department reports 26.57% of the adult population in the county has been fully vaccinated, with 36.40% partially vaccinated.
