(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.
