The State of Missouri has issued vaccine eligibility in phases and tiers.

THREE APPROVED VACCINES

Pfizer/BioNTech

  • Two doses given 21 days apart
  • 95% effective against symptomatic COVID-19

Moderna

  • Two doses given 28 days apart
  • 1% effective against symptomatic COVID-19

Johnson & Johnson

  • Single dose

While the State of Missouri has experienced growing pains throughout its vaccine roll out, over two million doses had been administered as of March 22, 2021. That means that about 23% of the Missouri population had received at least one dose. Patience and diligence are what health officials still request of the general public, noting that great strides have been made in a very short period of time.
