COVID-19 Latest News - Updated September 9, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Public Health is temporarily suspending walk-in services for our Immunizations Clinic. A limited number of appointments can be scheduled on Wednesdays by calling 636-949-1857.

To protect against vaccine-preventable diseases, the State of Missouri requires children to be immunized with specific vaccines before entering or continuing education in all public and some private schools. All immunization records must be up-to-date (with documentation for the month, day, and year of each vaccination) before a child is permitted to attend school. To help parents meet these requirements, the Immunization Clinic provides all recommended vaccines.

To schedule an appointment, please call 636-949-1857.
