COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Updated April 27, 2021
With all Missourians now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, we hope you’ve made plans to get vaccinated. There are now many options for both scheduled appointments and walk-ins in the St. Louis area and across the state.
Submitting Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination
Once you’ve received the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s important you report your vaccination via our vaccination reporting form. The form is confidential. While the university has not made a decision about requiring the vaccine in the future, we still need you to submit this information to help us with contract tracing efforts, to understand the vaccination needs on our campus and to inform our health and safety guidelines going forward.
Maryville has been approved as a vaccination site, but we don’t know when we will receive the vaccine. Once we have that information, we will send an update with instructions on how to make a vaccination appointment with the Office of Health and Wellness.

State of Missouri Vaccine Navigator
The State of Missouri has a Vaccine Navigator tool to help Missourians navigate the COVID-19 vaccination process. You can find the tool here.
FEMA Vaccination Site
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in partnership with the State of Missouri and St. Louis City launched a mass public vaccination site at The Dome at the America’s Center in St. Louis. While pre-registration is encouraged, the site accepts walk-ins. Individuals are encouraged to bring a photo ID, but this is not required.
At this time, the site is providing the two-dose Pfizer vaccine and appointments for the second dose will be scheduled at the time of the first dose.
Additionally, for individuals eligible for a second dose of Pfizer, The Dome will also provide second doses for individuals presenting their vaccination record verifying it has been 21 days since the first dose.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I have to get both doses at the same location?
It’s recommended to receive both doses from the same vaccination site, but not required. You should take your vaccination card with you for the second dose so your provider can fill in the information about the second dose. Keep your vaccination card in case you need it for future use.
- Who should I contact if I have a specific question about the Maryville’s vaccination plan?
If you have additional questions, please contact Maryville’s Health and Wellness Office at (314) 529-9520 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- How many doses of the vaccine will I receive, and will I get the same vaccination for the first and second dose?
Vaccines currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration require two doses taken three to four weeks apart; however, vaccines anticipated for approval in the next few months will require only one dose. If you receive a two-dose vaccine, you will receive 2 doses of the same vaccine formulation.
- Can I get COVID-19 from the vaccine?
The COVID-19 vaccine is a Messenger RNA vaccine, also called a mRNA vaccine. mRNA vaccines do not contain a live virus and do not carry a risk of causing disease in the vaccinated person. For more information on the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine, please visit covidvaccine.mo.gov/facts/.
- Where can I find information on the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine?
Information on the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 along with other important information can be found at: https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/facts/.
- Is there a cost associated to be vaccinated?
The COVID-19 vaccine is free as part of the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
- Will a COVID-19 vaccination be required for Maryville students, faculty and staff?
The University has not made a determination on a requirement yet. We will communicate with the community once a decision is reached. We encourage all Maryville students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated when they are eligible.
- Once I am vaccinated, can I stop wearing a face covering and social distancing?
Until approximately 75 – 80% of the US population is vaccinated and we reach herd immunity, we will need to continue wearing face coverings and social distancing. Based on estimates for healthcare experts, we anticipate a more normal fall semester with reduced mitigation measures.
- After I am vaccinated will I still need to complete the daily health survey?
You will need to continue to complete the daily health survey. Although vaccination dramatically reduced the likelihood of severe COVID-19 illness, vaccinated individuals may still contract the virus and can pass it on to others. It is important the individuals who are exposed to someone who is COVID-19 positive or have developed symptoms continue to report through the daily health survey and follow quarantine and isolation protocols as directed by the Health and Wellness Office.
- Once I am vaccinated, will I still need to quarantine if exposed to someone with COVID-19?
An individual in this situation should always consult with the Health & Wellness Office and/or their primary care provider prior to making a final determination about quarantine.A vaccinated person who has been exposed to COVID-19 might not be required to quarantine if they meet ALL of the following criteria per the St. Louis County Department of Public Health:
- The Vaccinated Person is Fully Vaccinated – it has been 14 days since the person received their second dose of a 2 dose series or 14 days following receipt of a one dose of a single dose vaccine;
- The Vaccinated Person received the last dose of the vaccine within 3 months of the exposure; AND
- The Vaccinated Person has remained asymptomatic since exposure.
For the University to grant this quarantine exemption, an individual will need to have submitted proof of their COVID-19 vaccine through this reporting form.
