Appointments will be made for the second dose at each clinic. Booster shots will be available to those who are eligible.

 Since St. Louis County Library began hosting vaccine events in May 2021, over 775 vaccinations have been administered at library branches. Prior vaccine events were held periodically at branches throughout the county. The new schedule provides a reliable and consistent day and time when vaccines are available, making it easier for people to get a vaccine while they’re visiting the library for books, movies and other materials.

“Getting more of our community vaccinated is critical to getting us through this pandemic,” County Executive Dr. Sam Page said. “This expanded partnership with the county library system will provide greater access to the vaccine and help us eliminate the disparities we are seeing in certain zip codes.”

 Kristen Sorth, St. Louis County Library Director & CEO said, “During the pandemic, we have served as a center of community by partnering with organizations to provide essential services such as meals, diapers, technology, tutoring and rental assistance at our branches.   We’re happy to continue assisting the region by expanding access to vaccinations on a regular basis at four branch locations. The library is a safe and trusted community resource, individuals can pick up their library materials, use our computers and get a vaccine in one visit.” 

Spring Schmidt, Deputy Director, St. Louis County Department of Public Health, said: “The St. Louis County Library has been a wonderful partner throughout this pandemic. Branches have distributed masks, helped people access care digitally, and provided information and education to so many residents. We cannot thank them enough for partnering with us on increasing vaccinations. Libraries are a community treasure and we are grateful for the role they are playing to keep our communities healthy.”
