[ARCHIVED] Feb. 22: Vaccine update from Johnson County

Coronavirus update square

Important information from JCDHE regarding COVID-19 vaccinations

By the end of today, Johnson County Department of Health and Environment will have vaccinated more than 50,000 people either at its own clinics or through our health care system partners. Progress includes vaccinating nearly 40 percent of our county’s educators and school staff. In addition, results from an informal JCDHE survey indicate that all of our county’s Long Term Care Facilities have received their first and second doses as part of the Federal Pharmacy Program.

The following is Johnson County’s vaccination plan for the week of Feb. 22. However, it should be noted that we still have not received next week’s doses due weather delays. If we do not receive our allotted doses for next week, these plans are subject to change.

  • Health care workers – JCDHE continues to schedule healthcare workers whose second doses are due for appointments next week. Appointments are being scheduled via a unique link.
  • 80+ population - The county will provide limited appointments for first and second doses to this group next week. People in this age group must please complete the interest form. Those who have successfully completed the county’s interest form and have not been vaccinated will receive a follow-up email or phone call from the county on how to book an appointment. We are regularly monitoring our data to ensure that everyone who takes this survey is being contacted when they are eligible for an appointment.
  • 65+ population - Johnson County hospital systems – Advent Health, Menorah, Overland Park Regional, Olathe Health, KU-Med, St. Luke’s Hospital are offering vaccinations. Go to their websites for more information.
  • K-12 public and private school staff and daycare providers – These individuals will continue to be vaccinated through Children’s Mercy next week at various locations. Eligible staff should receive information from their school or district administration. Additional clinics for daycare center staff and home childcare providers who completed the county’s interest survey have been scheduled.
  • Independent Living Facilities - JCDHE is working with Hy-Vee and Auburn pharmacy to provide vaccinations to 1900 people in 27 independent living facilities.
  • Federal Pharmacy Retail Program – began this week, see jocogov.org/covid-19-vaccine for additional information.
  • Anyone in the Tier 1 categories who missed their first dose – These individuals can make an appointment at any available vaccination clinic. 

We will keep the public updated on next week’s plans and the status of our dose allotment  at jocogov.org/covid-19-vaccine.
