Booster Shot Clinics Open for KCMO residents
The KCMO Health Department has opened three clinics to provide eligible residents with the newly approved COVID booster shots.
The added layer of protection has been approved for three groups of people:
- Age 65 and older
- Age 16-64 with underlying health conditions
- Those who work in high-risk jobs
You can get your booster shot six months after your second dose, and these booster shots are only for people who received the Pfizer vaccination. You can get your COVID booster and your annual flu shot at the same time at these clinics. First and second doses of the COVID vaccine are also available.
What you’ll need:
- Proof of earlier COVID vaccinations.
- Insurance isn’t required, but if you have insurance, please bring your information so the health department may be reimbursed for the administration fee. You won’t be charged this fee.
If you have questions about the booster or need help scheduling an appointment, please call 816-513-1313 Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. And remember that walk-ins are always welcomed and encouraged.

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.

Minors (those ages 16 or 17) are now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination at one of our four clinics:
- Teens should bring something to show their name and age, such as a photo ID (like a driver’s license) or a school ID (e.g. showing that they are a sophomore, junior, or senior at a high school).
- The Kansas City Health Department requests that a parent or guardian be present. The parent or guardian may also be asked for something that shows their name and address, such as an ID, a piece of mail, or similar.
