Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is expecting an additional 6,825 COVID-19 vaccines from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment this week. JCDHE is following the state's vaccine distribution plan, which currently is in Phase 1 (health care workers, long-term care staff and residents, and pandemic response workers). These additional doses should take us through most of what we need to conclude Phase 1.
Appointment-based vaccine clinics are scheduled for this week for those in Phase 1. If you are in Phase 1 and have not received a vaccine yet, please schedule an appointment.
On Friday, JCDHE shared a survey for Phase 2 residents. This phase includes, among others, those 65 and older. The survey received overwhelming response. We appreciate your patience, as we addressed technical issues related to the tremendous participation. We believe those issues have been resolved. The survey is being conducted to gather interest in the vaccine. It does not reserve vaccine or offer an appointment. Those who successfully complete the survey will see a confirmation message on the screen (like the one below), rather than receive an email. If you did not complete the survey, or do not remember seeing that confirmation message on your screen, the survey is still open and available to Phase 2 residents.
Those in Phase 1 who failed to receive their vaccination, will still be allowed to do so in all subsequent phases.
