COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

Coronavirus vaccine supply and demand in Missouri is continuing to drop, as fewer Missourians get the vaccine each week.

For the week of April 26, Missouri received 57,000 doses of the vaccine. Then, for the week of May 3, Missouri got 20,620 doses. A few weeks later for May 25, Missouri only received 2,670 doses of the vaccine, which then dropped even lower this Tuesday when Missouri reported receiving just 1,670 doses.

Even though Missouri received only 1,670 doses this week, vaccinators in the state of Missouri have access to a projected 36,000 doses of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine and 67,000 doses of Moderna version each week.

This all comes as fewer Missourians get the vaccine. The seven-day average of daily vaccinations has dropped to 8,818 Monday, which is the lowest average since the peak on April 11.

So far, 41.8% of Missouri's population have initiated vaccination and 34.7% have completed vaccination.
