Chris Fink reports from Jeffereson City.
St. Louis city senator Harry Kennedy is sponsoring a bill which would require long term, adult day care, and assisted living facilities to offer the shots.
A representative from the the Capitol Health Care Center says they, and many other care centers, already offer the shots to staff and residents.
Under Kennedy's bill, Medicare and Medicaid would pay for the shots.So far, no one has raised opposition to the bill.
It goes before the Public Health committee next Wednesday
