Kansas City, Missouri — As his state continues to fight the COVID-19 hotspot, Missouri Governor Mike Parson gives Wednesday a new set of incentives to convince Missouri citizens to vaccinate. I will announce it.
According to the state COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard57% of the state’s population, at least 18 years old, have started the vaccination process and about 2.5 million Mizurians have completed the vaccination process.
However, vaccination numbers vary widely from place to place, and rural counties in the state generally report far fewer vaccinated populations.
Pulaski County, in south-central Missouri, reports that only 12.3% of the population has completed the vaccination process. Just an hour north of Pulaski County, Boone County, home of the University of Missouri Columbia, reports that 46% of its population has completed the vaccination process.
One of the reasons people are planning to announce a series of incentives at a press conference Wednesday afternoon is the disparity between cities and rural areas. The Governor is also expected to announce a new head of the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services.
Existing Director, Dr. Randall Williams, Resigned from his position During April. Robert Nodel, Deputy Chief of Person, is the Interim Director.

Earlier this month KSHB 41I-Team Report Although some vaccine incentives have proven to be effective elsewhere, they show that the ability to increase vaccination rates is not always clear.
