JCDHE offers opportunities for COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters
Testing is available at various community locations
The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is offering free COVID-19 vaccines at two clinics for children ages 5-11 years only. No appointment is needed for these two clinics. Children must have a parent or guardian present.
The vaccine clinics will be held from 8 – 11:30 a.m., Tuesday Dec. 21, and Tuesday, Dec. 28. Both clinics will be held at the Sunset Drive Office Building, 11811 S. Sunset Drive, Olathe. Other walk-in vaccination clinics for the community can be found at: https://www.jocogov.org/department/health/covid-19/covid-19-vaccine/vaccine-events
Parents can save time in line by completing this form and bringing it to the clinic for their child’s first or second dose. Parents should also bring their child’s COVID-19 vaccination record card for the second dose.
“We encourage families to take advantage of this opportunity to get their children vaccinated. The pediatric vaccine for children is safe and offers the best protection against symptomatic COVID disease,” said Dr. Sanmi Areola, JCDHE director.
COVID-19 testing is available this week at various community locations. JCDHE’s testing site is only currently open on Fridays but will be closed this Friday, Dec. 24 and next Friday, Dec. 31 due to the holidays.
First, second or booster vaccinations continue to be offered for adults and children in the community and by appointment at JCDHE’s Mission location. For more information go to jocogov.org/coronavirus.
The department's walk-in immunization clinic in Olathe will be closed on Dec. 21 and Dec. 28 due to the special vaccine clinics for children ages 5 -11 years.
