Local health groups to hold clinics for sensory processing needs

Missouri is holding pop-up vaccination clinics for people with developmental disabilities. 

Due to an increasing number of people diagnosed with sensory needs, Missouri is holding clinics with 10 local public health departments and pharmacies beginning next week. 

The state Department of Health and Senior Services says one in six Americans has a sensory processing need. 

Sensory-friendly vaccination clinics are designed to bring relief to locations that do not have interior physical space for a sensory room, and they provide a quick sensory refuge. 

The events will be next week in Hayti, Cape Girardeau, Berkeley, Cuba, Rolla, Springfield, Stockton, Sedalia, Warrensburg, and Independence. 

The vaccinations being given at these events vary.
