Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) is offering an easier way to make an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination. Beginning today, people who are age 16 and older and either live or work in Johnson County can make an appointment for their vaccination using this link: jocogov.org/covidvaccine
Prior to today, appointments were only made available to people who had taken Johnson County’s vaccine interest survey due to eligibility restrictions and limited vaccine availability. With the state opening up COVID-19 vaccinations to all phases as of March 29, and with dose allocations increasing to Johnson County, JCDHE is able to remove the barrier on appointment availability and open it up to all who are eligible.
“The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective and an important tool to getting us across the finish line of the pandemic,” said JCDHE Director Dr. Sanmi Areola. “JCDHE encourages all eligible people to make an appointment for a vaccine.”
The appointment tool is located at jocogov.org/covidvaccine and is available in English and Spanish.
