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:
- 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.
- Once an operator answers, ask to be registered for the Homebound Vaccination Program.
- The operator will ask a series of questions to determine if you qualify for this opportunity.
- If you do qualify for the Homebound Vaccination Program, you will likely be registered to receive the one-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccination.
- Robertson Fire Protection District will send Paramedic/Firefighters to your home to administer the COVID-19 vaccination.
- The Paramedic/Firefighters will remain on site to monitor for adverse reactions and to obtain the necessary demographic information.
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no out-of-pocket cost to participate in this program.
