Missouri health department urges COVID-19 vaccinations amid Delta variant spread | Coronavirus | stltoday.com JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri's health department on Wednesday urged residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19 amid increasing cases of the Delta variant of the virus. The department said a rising number of people are contracting the highly transmissible variant, which was first detected in India. "It is clear that the variant has become prevalent in communities throughout Missouri," the Department of Health and Senior Services said in a statement Wednesday evening. I'm still curious about whether news of these variants will have any effect on the "vaccine hesitant" or whether it will cut through their ranks like a hot knife through butter, like a lawnmower through dandelions, like a firehose through cotton candy, like a depressed English teacher through a box of Kind bars sitting in his desk drawer.
