Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is focused on providing vaccinations to some of our county’s vulnerable populations, including those who are homebound, without a permanent home or have a disability.
- Those with transportation needs: This week, JCDHE provided transportation for around a dozen people in the 80 and older age group who needed assistance getting to one of our clinics.
- Homebound population: JCDHE’s Outreach Nurses will visit residents who are homebound to vaccinate them over the next few weeks.
- Vaccinations in homeless shelters, those staying in other shelters and other highly impacted populations will begin next week. JCDHE is partnering with United Community Services, Health Partnership Clinic, Salvation Army, Safehome, Project 1020 and others.
- Vaccinations of residents who have an intellectual or developmental disability are set to begin. JCDHE is working with Johnson County Developmental Supports and Heartland Homecare Services.
Depending on available vaccine supplies, the county will continue to vaccinate those 65+, K-12 school staff, child care workers and health care workers.
