COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Bothwell is partnering with Pettis County Health Center, Katy Trail Community Health and AFC Urgent Care to offer the COVID-19 vaccine to our community.

The State of Missouri announced on Feb. 1 that Bothwell Regional Health Center has been selected as a high throughput vaccinator as part of Missouri’s new vaccine distribution plan. Through the state plan, Bothwell is scheduled to receive additional vaccine doses throughout February to accommodate administering the COVID-19 vaccine to our community and surrounding areas. Appointments scheduled through this effort will receive the Moderna vaccine.

As vaccine allotments are announced, vaccine appointments will be scheduled for upcoming vaccine clinics to those who have filled out the preregistration form. All vaccines will be given by appointment only.

Once we know when we will receive the next allocation of vaccines, patients will receive a call to set up an appointment if you meet the requirements for those in Phase 1B - Tier 1 or Phase 1B - Tier 2 based on the preregistration form. Appointments will be available as vaccines are available. 

Keep in mind, the vaccine is a two-dose vaccine and is not fully effective unless you receive both doses. Appointments for the second dose will be scheduled at the time the first appointment is scheduled.

Those individuals who are outlined under Phase 1B - Tier 3 may fill out the preregistration form. However, please note we are not allowed to vaccinate those individuals until the state moves to Tier 3. Phase 1B - Tier 2 will take awhile to vaccinate as after Tier 2, 50% of the Missouri population would be qualified to receive the vaccine.

If You Have Been Called for an Appointment

If you have been called for a vaccine appointment, vaccines are being administered at the MO-AG Theatre on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Enter the fairgrounds at the main gate off of 16th Street. The MO-AG Theatre will be on your right. Please reference the map below for the theatre’s location. Do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before your scheduled time.

No walk-in appointments will be accepted.

Information about the COVID-19 Vaccine

The vaccine Bothwell administers will be based on the vaccine allocation received from the State of Missouri for administration and may vary between the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine. The FDA has approved Emergency Use Authorizations for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are a two-dose vaccine and require both doses to be effective in protecting an individual from COVID-19.

The federal government is providing increasing supplies of the vaccine in 2021. More information on both vaccines can be found below.

Pfizer

The Pfizer vaccine is a two-dose vaccine with a 21-day period between the first and second dose. The Pfizer’s vaccine was approved for those age 16 and older. It is not recommended for individuals who have experienced a serious reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any of its components.

Each dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine contains 30 mcg of a nucleoside-modified messenger RNA (modRNA) encoding the viral spike (S) glycoprotein of SARS-CoV-2. It also includes the following ingredients: lipids (0.43 mg (4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate), 0.05 mg 2[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide, 0.09 mg 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine, and 0.2 mg cholesterol), 0.01 mg potassium chloride, 0.01 mg monobasic potassium phosphate, 0.36 mg sodium chloride, 0.07 mg dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate, and 6 mg sucrose. The diluent (0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP) contributes an additional 2.16 mg sodium chloride per dose.
