COVID-19 Vaccination

Lake Regional Health System is preparing to expand our COVID-19 vaccination offering. Although we do not currently have vaccines to distribute, we want to be ready to quickly schedule recipients when we do receive more vaccines.

The cost of the vaccine is free; however, because Lake Regional is a non-government and nonprofit entity, there will be a small administration fee to help offset administration expenses to provide this community service.

Join Our Waiting List

If you are interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, please use the appropriate link below to sign up for our waiting list. NOTE: COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out in phases. The State of Missouri determines when we move from one phase to the next. Where vaccine is available, Missouri is currently vaccinating Phase 1a and Phase 1b - Tier 1. Please read the examples to determine when you are eligible to receive the vaccine, and then sign up on the appropriate waiting list.

Do not expect an immediate call. Someone from Lake Regional will call you to schedule an appointment when we have vaccine available. Please do not sign up more than once.

Vaccine Distribution FAQs

I am in phase 1B, when will I receive the vaccine?

Currently, Lake Regional has not received vaccines to distribute. Although Phase 1B-Tier 1 began on Thursday, Jan. 14, and Phase 1B-Tier 2 began on Monday, Jan. 18, the state has not provided us with vaccines to start vaccinating people in these groups. Once vaccines have been distributed, Lake Regional will begin calling people on our wait list in these tiers to schedule an appointment.

When can I expect someone to call me?

Lake Regional will contact you when we are able to schedule your vaccination. Currently, we do not have vaccine, and we do not know when we will get it. We will not call to schedule your appointment until we have vaccine available for your phase. We appreciate your patience. We are also eager to provide this vaccine to our community.

Where will Lake Regional administer vaccines?

At this time, Lake Regional does not have any specific locations for where vaccines will be administered. The goal is to offer vaccination locations throughout our service area. The safety, health and well-being of our patients is always our top priority, and we will continue to follow the latest safety protocols from the CDC at all of our vaccination locations. We appreciate your trust in us, and we will do all we can to ensure the process is safe and convenient.

I filled out the wrong form. What do I do?

If you completed the wrong form, please go ahead and fill out the correct form for your phase. You can let us know which form is incorrect through our Contact Us form. For example, if you filled out phase 1B and then realized you belong in phase 2, complete the phase 2 form and notify us to remove you from phase 1B.
