Governor Mike Parson recently announced all Missouri residents will be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine starting April 9 - and health officials say that does apply to international and out-of-state college students.
Stephanie Browning, the director of Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services, said out-of-state and international students qualify to sign up for vaccine appointments with proof of address.
“If you’re using your local address that you use here, we consider you our resident,” Browning said. “You should be fine to get vaccinated here, same with the international students. So just have them use their local address and everything should be good,” says Browning.
