Mosaic’s Community Vaccine Site in St. Joseph is no longer offering the appointment request list for COVID-19 vaccine first doses.

I need to schedule an appointment for my first dose, how do I schedule?

Friday, April 16 will be the last day Mosaic’s Community Vaccine site will be providing first doses.

Starting May 4, 2021, Mosaic patients can schedule first doses by contacting their primary care provider.

I live/work in the Maryville or Albany area, can I receive a vaccine closer in one of those locations?

  • Yes. Both Mosaic Medical Center – Maryville and Mosaic Medical Center – Albany are working with their community partners on vaccination rollout in their areas.
  • Regional residents in Maryville - At this time Nodaway County Health Department and Mosaic Medical Center - Maryville are working on scheduling community vaccination events as supply is available. Get added to Maryville's Appointment Request List.
  • Regional residents in Albany - At this time Tri-County Health Department and Mosaic Medical Center - Albany are working through their current wait list. You can also get added to Maryville's Appointment Request List.

How much will the vaccine cost?

The COVID-19 vaccine will be free, regardless of whether you have private health insurance, are uninsured, or on Medicare. The Centers for Medicare and Medical Services (CMS), private insurers and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) have confirmed the vaccine and appointment will be free, at least throughout the pandemic.

Do I have to receive the second dose?

In order for the vaccine to reach maximum effectiveness, it is crucial that you receive the second dose within 21 (Pfizer) - 28 days (Moderna) of your first dose. If you do not receive the second dose, you will not reach the approximate 95% immunity. While it's best to receive your second dose within those time frames, the CDC says that within at least 42 days is still effective.

I have additional questions, is there someone I can contact?

Please email vaccine@myMLC.com for any additional questions.

Where can I send people for additional information about the vaccine?

Mosaic Life Care accepts the Mayo Clinic (www.mayo.org), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (www.cdc.gov) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (www.fda.gov) as sources of truth. Mosaic encourages you to do your own research on the COVID-19 vaccine.
