Why is Johnson County not following the CDC’s vaccine eligibility guidelines?

While the CDC offers recommendations on who can receive the vaccine, each state determines how the population is prioritized based on public health risk and criticality to state infrastructure.

When the Kansas Department of Health and Environment determines that vaccine supply is ample enough to move on to the next phase, Johnson County will follow that directive and begin vaccinating the next phase.
