Springfield-Greene County Health Department Starts “Finish Strong 417 Neighbor to Neighbor Campaign” for COVID-19 Vaccinations

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department says 54% of all eligible residents in Greene County are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

In an effort to increase vaccination rates, the health department and the city of Springfield are starting the “Finish Strong 417: Neighbor to Neighbor” vaccine outreach campaign.

The health department announced details of the campaign in this edited press release:

The campaign will include door-to-door canvassing, text and phone banking and other longstanding public health outreach efforts to help address the questions and concerns of unvaccinated individuals and connect them to vaccine opportunities in our community. The initiative is funded in part by the Missouri Foundation for Health.     

“The more people who are vaccinated, the safer we all are,” said Director of Health Katie Towns. “But we also understand that many people still have questions about the vaccine, and we want to provide every opportunity possible to get those questions answered.” 

The award from the Missouri Foundation for Health is funding two Community Health Advocates who will go door-to-door in areas of Springfield with low vaccination rates. The campaign also provides training for individuals and organizations who would like to become “Vaccine Champions” to help promote and encourage vaccination efforts. They will be provided materials and support, so they feel confident in going out into the community, talking to their neighbors and friends about the vaccine, and increasing vaccination rates in Greene County.  

Organizations and individuals interested in becoming Vaccine Champions and joining the Finish Strong 417: Neighbor to Neighbor campaign should contact the Health Department’s Outreach Team at or call (417) 874-1211 for more information.  


  1. I believe that all that want the jab have already gotten it. The campaign to vaccinate for for this virus has reached epic perforations. We can’t even Google a store ad without that banner popping up asking if we want information or an appt. The more coercion I see, the less I trust the idea behind it.
    We are sick of hearing about this!!!

  2. Boy you guys are really concerned with my health…..but wait, I’ve never seen you guys going door to door trying to get people to stop smoking or stop doing drugs or stop eating so much so I’m pretty sure you don’t really care about me or my health at all, so why don’t you guys just circle around my house when you come to my neighborhood!!!! Thanks

  3. So, if I, or my family become Ill due to this “vaccine”. liable? Who pays for all the ongoing medical care? Or funeral expenses?
    This is an EXPERIMENTAL shot and is still not approved. (Look it up.
    You can’t answer questions because there are NO LONG TERM STUDIES.
    Stay out of my health. It’s none of your business.

  4. These door-knockers are not welcome on my property, and there is a sign advising as such. If you trespass on my property, I will pursue legal action pursuant to 569.140 Missouri Criminal Code (see below)

    RSMO 569.140. Trespass in the first degree — penalty. — 1. A person commits the offense of trespass in the first degree if he or she knowingly enters unlawfully or knowingly remains unlawfully in a building or inhabitable structure or upon real property.

      2. A person does not commit the offense of trespass in the first degree by entering or remaining upon real property unless the real property is fenced or otherwise enclosed in a manner designed to exclude intruders or as to which notice against trespass is given by:

      (1) Actual communication to the actor; or

      (2) Posting in a manner reasonably likely to come to the attention of intruders.

      3. The offense of trespass in the first degree is a class B misdemeanor, unless the victim is intentionally targeted as a law enforcement officer, as defined in section 556.061, or the victim is targeted because he or she is a relative within the second degree of consanguinity or affinity to a law enforcement officer, in which case it is a class A misdemeanor. If the building or real property is part of a nuclear power plant, the offense of trespass in the first degree is a class E felony.”

  5. You are not welcome at my door.

  6. They can pay people to go door to door and “spread awareness” and coerce people who clearly DO NOT WANT THIS SHOT, but they can’t help even a single type one diabetic person who can’t afford insulin, just to merely survive another day? Seems super “about our health.”

  7. Never before in the history of our country has the government at the federal, state, and local levels been so involved in pushing for a shot which cannot even legally by any medical standard be called a vaccine. The people that have wanted it have taken it, the rest of us don’t want it and are quite frankly tired of you the local leaders trying to ram it down our throats. Does the virus magically go away if it meets your threshold percentage? More and more medical and scientific studies, and journals are proving that the vaccines are currently causing the variant strains. The longer we propagate lockdowns, mask mandates and this insidious push from the government to take a shot of something that only the manufacturers know what’s in it the longer this virus will remain. Your local hospitals are strained because they’re leadership is inept. The citizens of Springfield don’t need you to go door to door canvassing neighborhoods, how much of that money could be put to use on free insulin for diabetics, or free health checks for the homeless?

  8. With all due respect my healthcare concerns are between me and my Dr. Nobody Else!!!

  9. Trespassing in Missouri, I think the term for this is natural selection.

  10. In the last year… white versus people of color, rich against poor, conservatives against liberals, gays against straights & now vax versus unvax. What’s next? Welcome to the introduction of the new world order. Time to fight back.
