That presupposes the state sends the county the doses, Ave warned.

Ave said the county also works with at least a dozen pediatric practices as well as school districts, but no details had been worked out.

Onye Hollomon, communications director for the Ferguson-Florissant school district, said the district is investigating families to measure interest in vaccinations at the school.

If there is enough interest, she said, “the hope and goal is to roll it out soon.”

George Sells, spokesman for St. Louis Public Schools, said school officials are planning a vaccine clinic. They will meet with the health authorities on Wednesday.

Mary Enger, St. The Charles County spokeswoman said that when the health department receives standing orders from the state health department, the county will have mass events, library events and clinic appointments at the county health department.

Lisa Cox, spokeswoman for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, said the state expects 116,100 doses distributed at pharmacies, hospitals, clinics and others. Pharmacy chains may possibly start vaccinating first, she said.
