While most American adults have been vaccinated, people in some states are still hesitant to get their shots.
In Missouri, hospital space is now a concern as COVID cases go up.
"Should we start to see a high number of COVID patients like they are there, we're going to be very challenged with how many beds that we have available," Steve Hoeger of the MARC Health Care Coalition said.
About 56% of adults in Missouri have gotten at least one vaccine shot. That vaccination rate is about 12 points lower than the national rate.
