Emilee Kuschel, Mike Landis, KOLR

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is planning a new approach to help Southwest Missourians get vaccinated against COVID-19.

With the national vaccination rate at just over 55 percent of adults, Greene County is sitting much lower at around 39 percent.

Health officials in Greene County say they plan to take a more personal approach to vaccinations, connecting with community leaders, faith organizations, and neighborhood groups.

As KOLR-10 reports, they hope this will help the community connect with the message on a personal level.
