COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility (Primary and Booster Dose)

How Do I Get a Vaccine?

How do I get a vaccine if I'm younger than 18?

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now available to children age 5 and older in Kansas. A parent/guardian must sign the vaccine consent form for any child under the age of 18: dispenseassist.net/Covid.html or dispenseassist.net/spanish/Covid.html. Children age 15 and younger receiving a COVID-19 vaccination must be accompanied by an adult. A parent/guardian is preferable; however, the parent/guardian may designate a non-parent adult on the consent form to be present at the time of vaccination if the parent/guardian is unavailable.

What if I have lost my COVID-19 vaccination record card?

If you received your COVID-19 vaccination from JCDHE, you can complete this form (English) or this form (Español) and return it to JCDHE via email, fax or regular mail. For medical record questions, email [email protected].

If you received your COVID-19 vaccine from another provider (i.e., doctor's office, pharmacy, out of state provider), please contact them directly for a copy of your records. JCDHE only has vaccination records for people who received their COVID-19 vaccine(s) at a JCDHE clinic.

What will the vaccine cost?

There is no cost for the vaccine through JCDHE.

How do health care providers sign up to provide COVID-19 vaccine?

Any health care provider that wants a supply of the COVID-19 vaccine to administer to their patients or staff needs to email a request to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment at [email protected]. KDHE will send the health care provider an enrollment form and instructions on how to order, store and administer the vaccine.

If I live in Johnson County, do I have to get vaccinated in Johnson County?

No. There are plenty of COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States, you can get vaccinated at any location that is convenient for you (clinic, pharmacy, employer).

Can I get the vaccine at my doctor’s office?

You will need to contact your doctor directly to find out if they are a COVID-19 vaccinator. Not every doctor’s office has the storage capability required for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Where can I get the COVID-19 vaccination?

Vaccines are available to individuals age 5 and older through the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment. Appointments must be made for first, second, additional or booster COVID-19 vaccines. JCDHE is not able to accommodate walk-ins for COVID-19 vaccinations.

Vaccines are also available at JCDHE's community vaccine clinics, through local health care systems and at local pharmacies.

How do people without computer access sign up for vaccinations?

They can call the Department of Health and Environment at 913-715-2819 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. This line is also available for those who speak Spanish. Our staff can assist Johnson County residents and employees in making a vaccine appointment through the health department.

What should I bring to my vaccination site?

Bring the following to your vaccination site:

  • JCDHE's vaccine consent form (if you do not have access to print this form, you will be able to fill one out at the vaccination site.)
  • Your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (second/third/booster doses only)
  • Proof of your appointment (print or electronic)

Why is Johnson County not doing drive-thru vaccine clinics?

Due to the large amount of staffing required for clinics, weather conditions and the volume of individuals coming through clinics, it would be difficult for Johnson County to conduct. Mobile vaccine clinics may be available to limited groups.

Which local pharmacies are offering COVID-19 vaccines?

VaccineFinder helps you find the most up-to-date list of clinics, pharmacies and other locations that offer COVID-19 vaccines in the United States: vaccinefinder.org/search.

Can I get a COVID-19 vaccine and a flu vaccine during the same visit?

According to the CDC, you can get a COVID-19 vaccine and a flu vaccine at the same time.

If you haven’t gotten your currently recommended doses of COVID-19 vaccine, get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can, and ideally get a flu vaccine by the end of October.

If you have concerns about getting both vaccines at the same time, you should speak with your health care provider.
