(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph Health Department's immunization department will be closed Friday, February 28th.

Health department staff said they'll be updating their "ShowMe Vax" registry, and as a result, vaccination will not be available for the day.

"We will be holding vaccines so that we have time to learn the brand new system make sure we're doing it correctly," Connie Werner Clinic Director St. Joseph Health Department said. 

The update will bring the Health Department up to speed with current standards for the ShowMe Vax program, as well as other health departments across the state using the new version of the program.

The ShowMe Vax program was first implemented in 2010 and is used to keep a registry of patient's vaccine records across the state.

No other services will be affected by the update.

Snow showers have left the area and we saw anywhere from 2-4 inches of snow. Surface temperatures for the most part remain above freezing so accumulations were mostly on elevated and grassy surfaces. Skies slowly cleared throughout the day with temperatures warming into the mid to upper 40s. Conditions look to dry out and slowly warm throughout the next few days. Rain chances will return mainly through the morning hours on Friday with temperatures back in the 60s. Temperatures will continue to warm through the weekend with highs back in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Temperatures will be close to 80s for the beginning of next week under mostly sunny skies.
