The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment has the following update regarding COVID-19 vaccines recently received:
JCDHE will conduct vaccination clinics this week with the goal of vaccinating 1,000 health care workers each day.
In addition, KU Medical Center will open a clinic this week, including this weekend, to vaccinate 1,700 Johnson County health care workers. JCDHE and KU Medical Center are working on the logistics of how to get people registered for vaccination at their facility.
If you are a health care-associated worker, and your employer has not provided a date for you to be vaccinated, please have someone from your office complete the online form to let JCDHE know your staff is interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine. If you have already completed this form, no further action is needed. By completing the form, health care practices/organizations will be placed on a list and will be notified when the vaccine becomes available.
Prior to today, JCDHE had received 1,200 doses from KDHE and 2,800 from Health Partnership Clinic. At this time, in following the state’s plan, JCDHE is only vaccinating health care-associated workers, EMS and public health staff. JCDHE has registered more than 25,000 health care providers to be vaccinated.
