Thousands receive COVID-19 vaccine at CHS
It’s almost like Spring is starting and we’re hopefully walking out of this dark valley we have been in. I won’t say our workload has declined. It shifted from investigations and interventions to vaccinating people. We as a health department vaccinate people and it’s joyful work on our part,” Clinton County Health Department Administrator Blair Shock

A mass vaccination program based out of Cameron High School vaccinated more than 1,600 residents of Northwest Missouri.

Last Saturday morning cars lined up around the block for the first mass vaccination in Cameron and by 3 p.m. reported all available doses had been administered as part of a joint program involving the area health departments, medical providers, the Missouri National Guard and various other first responders.

“In total, we had more than 120 staff and volunteers assisting with this clinic. We are forever indebted to them for their assistance. We look forward to the second-dose clinic in a few weeks,” Clinton County Health Department Administrator Blair Shock said via a social media post following Saturday’s mass vaccination.
