JCDHE has changed its process for second dose appointments. JCDHE is automatically scheduling second dose appointments exactly three weeks after the first vaccine at the same time and location. More information is available on our second dose webpage.

The following is Johnson County’s vaccination plan for the week of March 1. If we do not receive our allotted doses for next week, these plans are subject to change.

  • 65+ population – JCDHE will offer appointments for those age 65 and older starting Wednesday, March 3. This includes people 80 and older who still need to get vaccinated. Johnson County hospital systems – AdventHealthMenorah Medical Center, Overland Park Regional, Overland Park Regional, KU Med, St. Luke's Hospital are offering vaccinations. Go to their websites for more information.
  • K-12 public and private school staff and daycare providers – These individuals will continue to be vaccinated through Children’s Mercy next week at various locations. Eligible staff should receive information from their school or district administration. Additional clinics for daycare center staff and home childcare providers who completed the county’s interest survey have been scheduled.
  • Independent Living Facilities – JCDHE is working with Hy-Vee and Auburn pharmacy to provide vaccinations to 1,900 people in 27 independent living facilities.
  • Federal Pharmacy Retail Program – This began last week, see jocogov.org/covid-19-vaccine for additional information.
  • Health care workers and anyone in the Phase 2 Tier 1 categories who missed their first dose – These individuals can make an appointment at any available vaccination clinic. 

People eligible for Phase 2 should take the county’s interest form if they haven’t yet. They will receive a follow-up email or phone call from the county on how to book an appointment when doses become available for them. We are regularly monitoring our data to ensure that everyone who takes this survey is being contacted when they are eligible for an appointment.

We will keep the public updated on next week’s plans and the status of our dose allotment at jocogov.org/covid-19-vaccine. Those with questions about vaccinations can contact us at [email protected] or by phone at 913-715-2819.
