St. Louis County well being happy with elevated vaccines

LIBERTY, Mon. (AP) – St. Louis County executive Sam Page welcomes the state’s decision to send 3,000 weekly doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the county health department. And he hopes better communication will ease the frustration that has broken out this week between Governor Mike Parson and some health officials in eastern Missouri. Parson said Thursday the St. Louis area health officials misled residents about how many doses of vaccine the area received. Page said Friday that state health officials have improved communication about the distribution plan. But he also praised Dr. Alex Garza, head of the St. Louis Pandemic Task Force, whom Parson picked for criticism on Thursday.
