Homebound? COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Brought To You.

If you cannot leave your home to get a COVID-19 vaccine, the St. Louis County Department of Health and the Robertson Fire Protection District may be able to help.

Through the St. Louis County Department of Public Health’s Homebound COVID-19 Vaccine Program, the COVID-19 vaccine can come to you. Here’s how it works:

  1. If you are a homebound individual, call 314-615-2660. Be sure to stay on the line throughout the automated answering message and wait to speak to an operator.
  2. Once an operator answers, ask to be registered for the Homebound Vaccination Program.
  3. The operator will ask a series of questions to determine if you qualify for this opportunity.
  4. If you do qualify for the Homebound Vaccination Program, you will likely be registered to receive the one-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccination.
  5. Robertson Fire Protection District will send Paramedic/Firefighters to your home to administer the COVID-19 vaccination.
  6. The Paramedic/Firefighters will remain on site to monitor for adverse reactions and to obtain the necessary demographic information.
  7. Shortly after receiving the vaccine, the St. Louis County Department of Public Health will contact you to complete a questionnaire about what side effects you may have experienced.

The Department of Public Health is also accepting email inquiries at [email protected]. There is no out-of-pocket cost to participate in this program.
