Please remain patient as the federal vaccine supply is low. The decision to move to a new vaccination phase at the state level will be announced through multiple channels, including this website, KansasVaccine.gov, as well as the Governor’s press releases and local media outlets.
Your local public health department does have the flexibility to move to the next phase based on available supply, vaccine administration and anticipated patient demand. Stay updated on what’s happening in your community by following your local public health department or federally qualified health center on social media and by checking their website. You can also contact your local health department directly.
Providers have been encouraged to implement some form of patient sub-group verification, such as employer letters, age checks wherever easy and accessible, self-reported surveys or screening online or on-site. Verify your provider’s screening requirements before going to your appointment. If you foresee any challenges to providing this type of identification, please contact the vaccine provider, your local public health department or call KDHE at 866-534-3463 or email.
The federal vaccine supply is still very limited, so Kansas is administering COVID vaccinations in alignment with the phases outlined in the Vaccine Prioritization Plan. An approximate timeline is associated with each phase; however, it is subject to change based on federal vaccine supply. While the specific timeline cannot be guaranteed, the goal is to vaccinate all Kansans who want to be vaccinated this year.
The Vaccine Prioritization Plan accounts for all Kansans, so if you do not qualify for an earlier phase based on your profession or medical condition, then you would qualify for a later phase based on your age. Find the latest information in the Vaccine Prioritization Plan.
