Today started one of the biggest vaxx events in the American Midwest . . .
Deets . . .
State and local leaders kicked off the first Missouri mega vaccination event at Arrowhead Stadium today. Organizers are poised to distribute thousands shots this weekend alone.
Initial estimates stated at least 6,000 people could get vaccinated through this event. Now, Parson said that number could be more like 8,000.
Missouri Governor Mike Parson said the event is focusing on the most vulnerable people in the city.
“Not too long ago, I met with the legislators behind me,” Parson said. “We may differ sometimes in the political arena, but I’ll tell you, getting people here to get the vaccine, trying to help people every day, that’s what it’s all about, being a public servant, and I want to thank all of them for their work, their effort and making these two days possible here in Kansas City.”

MAYOR Q WAS NOTICEABLY ABSENT FROM THE MEGA ARROWHEAD VAXX EVENT PRESS CONFERENCE KICK-OFF!!!
Instead, he focused on bus rides to the local poke party . . .
"Our transit operators have worked hard to keep us going over the past year. Excited to see that we were able to get them vaccinated today. Thank you to the Missouri National Guard for a special vaccination effort at @RideKCTransit and to our transit and union leadership."
And so . . . We're happy that both the Missouri Guv & the KCMO honcho have both given their support to the event.
