“However, widespread immunity — which is essential to full recovery and return to normal — will require a higher percentage of participation,” states a release from the Missouri Chamber and MHA.

New polling of Missourians’ attitudes about COVID-19 vaccination shows work is needed to educate citizens about the individual and collective value of receiving the vaccine, states a release from the Missouri Hospital Association. The Missouri Hospital Association is a not-for-profit that represents 140 Missouri hospitals. The association offers continuing education programs on current health care topics and seeks to educate the public about health care issues.
