Dear Parishioners,  

Recently, the St. Louis County Health Department asked if our church would be a vaccination location for the community. We have consulted with the Archdiocese regarding this request, and along with the Archdiocese we believe that this is a positive community outreach.  

The first dose of the Pfizer vaccine will be available at St. Matthias Parish Center on September 3, 2021 from 10:00am-2:00pm, for anyone who is interested. The second  dose of the vaccine will be available at St. Matthias Parish Center on September 24, 2021 from 10:00am-2:00pm.  

As a vaccination site, our parish is solely providing the location for this clinic. The St. Louis County Health Department will be fully operating the clinic, providing medical professionals, distributing the vaccines and scheduling follow-up appointments.  

It is important to note that the only vaccine which will be distributed at our parish is the Pfizer vaccine. For more information regarding the morality surrounding COVID-19 vaccines from the Archdiocese of St. Louis, the Missouri Catholic Conference and the USCCB, please read the statements from the respective organizations below:

 More information about the COVID-19 vaccine and clinic locations is available on the St. Louis County  Health Department website at https://stlcountycovidvaccine.as.me/schedule.php?calendarID=5897308 

 God Bless,
