Pfizer vaccine available in Cassville
Clinic scheduled for June 26
The Barry County Health Department will conduct a vaccine clinic on June 26 at the Health Department’s Cassville office.
All Missouri residents aged 12 and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination. There is no cost to individuals receiving the vaccine. Residents must call 417-847-2114 to schedule an appointment.
Over 10,000, or 30 percent, of Barry County residents have begun the vaccine regimen. Summertime events and travel will continue to place unvaccinated people at great risk of contracting COVID-19.
“Infections in Barry County and Southwest Missouri are on the rise and it is extremely important that people get their vaccination,” a Health Department press release said.
The CDC recommendations for those who are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after second dose) include:
• Travel domestically without pre or post travel COVID testing.
• Travel domestically without quarantining.
• Travel internationally (depending on destination) without a pre-travel CoVID test.
• Travel internationally without post-travel quarantining.
Masking and physical distancing continues to be recommended for non-vaccinated persons.
