Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) continues to urge all who are age 12 and older to receive a vaccine during the COVID-19 vaccination clinic hours, which includes evening and weekend availability. Walk-in hours are also available. More details on clinic hours are listed below.
This week, JCDHE reports that 50.1% of eligible persons in Johnson County are at least partially vaccinated. Current JCDHE vaccination efforts are shown on the COVID-19 dashboard.
To request onsite vaccinations for a business, organization or event, a Community Vaccination Event Request form https://www.jocogov.org/community-covid-19-vaccination-event-request can be completed and submitted.
“There are many appointments and opportunities to walk in and receive a vaccination” said Dr. Sanmi Areola, JCDHE director. “Please come and take advantage of the quick and easy process of getting your shot.”
The following is Johnson County’s vaccination plan for the week of May 24. This is in accordance with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment Vaccination Plan.
JCDHE is taking the following actions to ensure vaccination equity:
JCDHE is automatically scheduling Pfizer second-dose appointments three weeks after the first vaccine and four weeks after the Moderna vaccine for the same day and time. More information is available on our second dose webpage.
We will keep the public updated on next week’s plans and the status of our dose allotment at jocogov.org/covid-19-vaccine.
