Mercy is now offering walk-in vaccinations in Springfield thanks to a large supply of the Pfizer vaccine.
The vaccine clinic location at 4520 S. National Ave. in Springfield will take walk-ins Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. You can also save your spot at that location – and others throughout the Ozarks – by going online to www.mercy.net/MOVaccine. If locations outside Springfield temporarily run low on vaccine, they will come off the website until they receive more supply. Just keep checking if you don’t see a site near you.
Please bring valid identification to your appointment. Vaccines are approved for those ages 16 and up, but patients younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian present at their appointment. You’ll schedule a time for your second dose of the vaccine when you get your first.
“I think it’s important for people to understand that even if they don’t think they’re at high risk, this is something we can all do to protect our entire community,” Dr. Will Sistrunk, head of infectious disease for Mercy, said in a statement. “The side effects are generally minimal, and they mean the vaccine is working to boost your immune system.”
Missouri’s online vaccine navigator does not include Mercy appointments, so walking in to the Springfield clinic or going online to www.mercy.net/MOVaccine.
