A registered nurse in southeast Missouri’s Cape Girardeau is the first employee at St. Francis Healthcare to receive the COVID vaccine. KFVS’ Jeff Cunningham reports hospital officials praise Alicia Caldwell’s dedication in the COVID unit.



St. Francis Healthcare System serves more than 700,000 southeast Missourians, along with residents from four other states.  It happened Friday in Cape Girardeau, and Alicia Caldwell’s colleagues cheered for her.



Governor Parson says more than one-thousand Missouri health care workers have received the vaccine.
