MMR Vaccination Clinic This Monday

In regard to the recent measles outbreak, and as our community anticipates the influx over Pesach of guests from sites of recent measles outbreaks and the pressing need for immunization, please be advised that the St Louis County Dept. of Public Health, working with the Jewish Community, has arranged for an expedited MMR vaccination clinic on Monday April 22nd8:30-11:00 am, at their John C. Murphy Health Center, 6121 North Hanley Road for people who need it. You will need an ID card and evidence of county residence and an Insurance Card, if you wish to use your insurance.

Note that receiving MMR vaccine within 72 hours after potential exposure is thought to still be effective. Thus, immunization on Monday morning is within the window for exposures from Noon Friday April 19th onward. This special immunization clinic provides an additional option for those whose pre-Pesach schedules preclude immunization this week.
