Governor Parson says the number of vaccine doses Missouri vaccinators are requesting has tripled.

About 41-percent of Missourians are fully vaccinated as the delta variant continues to drive up the state’s coronavirus case count, target unvaccinated people, and overwhelm some hospitals.

Once Missourians receive a dose, they can enter the sweepstakes by going to MOStopsCovid.com/win or by calling the state’s COVID-19 hotline.
