Letter from the President to the Maryville Community

Good afternoon,

I am pleased to announce that through our partnership with St. Luke’s Hospital, eligible faculty, staff and students will be able to schedule expedited COVID-19 vaccinations appointments through the hospital. We are continuing to pursue our vaccine site application through the State of Missouri as part of our long-term plans for managing COVID-19; however, our partnership with St. Luke’s allows us more immediate access to the vaccine for our faculty, staff and students.

Vaccine Information

  • St. Luke’s provides the two-dose Pfizer vaccine to individuals age 16 and over. The second dose should be administered at least 21 days after the first dose and timed as close as possible to that interval.
  • Individuals receiving the vaccine from St. Luke’s will need to return to St. Luke’s for their second dose.
  • Community members who have received a first dose of the vaccine at another location must return to the same location for their second dose – St. Luke’s cannot administer your second dose.
  • There is no out-of-pocket cost for individuals receiving the vaccine at St. Luke’s.
  • Community members should plan to bring their insurance card (if you have insurance) and a photo ID for the vaccination appointment.

What to Expect

  • Eligible faculty, staff and students who have pre-registered through Maryville will receive an email from St. Luke’s with a link to schedule an appointment, bypassing the hospital’s standard vaccination registration process.
  • St. Luke’s will contact community members to schedule vaccination appointments based on the State of Missouri eligibility phases.
  • Maryville will continue to accept pre-registrations through April 9, 2021. After that date, community members will need to contact the Health and Wellness Office for information on scheduling vaccination appointments.
  • Family members of Maryville community members are invited to register for vaccination through St. Luke’s at lukesvaccine.com.

I encourage all of you to get vaccinated as soon as you are eligible and remember to report your vaccination information to Maryville here. This information remains an important part of our contact tracing program and will also be used to inform health and safety planning and guidelines on campus.

We cannot thank all of you enough for your patience and diligence in following COVID protocols aimed at keeping our campus community healthy. We are so grateful to St. Luke’s for helping us take the next step toward a more normal campus environment and I encourage everyone to take advantage of the expedited vaccination opportunity.
