Where to get vaccinations…
“Our public health goal is to put vaccines in as many arms as possible,” said Dr. Sanmi Areola, JCDHE director. “The vaccine is the best way to prevent a COVID-19 infection and stay healthy”.
The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) is making the COVID-19 vaccination available to everyone age 16 and older. The available times includes evening and weekends. Walk-ins are also available. Clinic hours are listed below.

Our community in Kansas City has at the same time been disproportionately affected by COVID deaths and seen lower vaccination rates. Help us reverse these trends, with a vaccine that has been thoroughly tested and marked safe by researchers and the FDA. Regardless of status (age, risk level, etc.), connect with us.
