The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment’s walk-in health clinic in Mission will reopen on Monday, May 9 for services.
Starting on Monday, May 9, the Mission clinic located at 6000 Lamar Ave. will be open Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed 12-12:30 p.m. for lunch; last check-in is at 3 p.m.) for walk-in services that include pregnancy tests and contraception services, STI testing and treatment and immunizations (including COVID-19).

“We are pleased to offer these services again to our clients in northern Johnson County,” says JCDHE Director Sanmi Areola. “Reopening the Mission clinic four days a week means we can increase the number of people we serve, as we continue to work towards becoming a healthier community,” says Areola.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mission walk-in clinic was open two days a week. The clinic was closed in March 2020 so staff could respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
JCDHE’s health services will also continue to be offered in Olathe Monday-Friday, including prenatal appointments, physical exams for employment, immunizations (including COVID-19) and many other services.
The Olathe clinic, located at 11875 S. Sunset Drive, is open Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Friday, 8 a.m. to Noon.
The Olathe clinic will close at 2 p.m. the day before Thanksgiving and at Noon on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. The Mission clinic will close the week of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s to accommodate staffing needs in Olathe.
