COVID-19 Vaccination

Join A Waiting List

Missouri has launched a Vaccine Navigator to help Missourians receive a COVID-19 vaccine. You will complete a questionnaire to determine your eligibility based on Missouri’s priority phases. You will be notified upon activation of each phase and alerted when you become eligible. You will then be able to seek vaccination from your health care provider if they have vaccines available or view mass vaccination events and other providers in your area.

We encourage you to use the Missouri Vaccine Navigator because we expect it will provide the earliest opportunity for you to receive the vaccine. However, you may still sign up on one of our waiting lists below.


What to Bring: Please bring these items to your vaccination appointment.

We have about 19,000 people on our waiting list and currently do not have a steady supply of vaccines arriving from the state. To join a Lake Regional waiting list, 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. Please do not sign up more than once, and please do not call to check your place in line. Someone from Lake Regional will call you to schedule an appointment when we have vaccine available. It will likely be weeks and could be months before we are able to call.

More Information

The cost of the vaccine is free; however, because Lake Regional is a non-government and nonprofit entity, there will be a small fee to help offset administration expenses to provide this community service. If you have health insurance, please bring your card to your vaccination appointment.

Vaccine Distribution FAQs

Which phases are receiving vaccine now?

Where vaccine is available, Missouri is currently vaccinating Phase 1A and Phase 1B - Tier 1 and Tier 2. Although Lake Regional has begun vaccinating these groups, demand is still far greater than we have supplies to meet. We do not know how many vaccines we will receive from the state or when, so we cannot estimate when someone will receive the vaccine.

I am at high risk for COVID complications. Can I receive the vaccine now?

Individuals who are 65 and older, as well as other adults at high risk for COVID-19 complications, are in Phase 1B - Tier 2. Currently, we have far more demand for this group than vaccines available. Lake Regional is using our waiting list to schedule appointments. We cannot estimate when we will receive enough vaccine to complete the list.

When can I expect someone to call me?

Lake Regional will contact you when we are able to schedule your vaccination. We appreciate your patience. We are also eager to provide this vaccine to our community.

Where will Lake Regional administer vaccines?

The goal is to offer vaccination locations throughout our service area. As our primary clinics receive vaccine, they are scheduling appointments with people on the waiting list. Our community vaccination events will occur at the former Pier 1 Imports, except for the Missouri National Guard Mass Vaccination event, which will be at The School of the Osage.

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. When we call you with an appointment, we will provide you with your location.

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.
