Kansas is in Phase 2 for vaccinations. We are prioritizing those 65 and older. People eligible in Phase 1, which includes healthcare workers and long-term care, can still be vaccinated. The vaccine phase chart can be viewed: https://www.kansasvaccine.gov/157/Availability.
Healthcare workers and long-term care residents will be the first to receive the vaccines. Those 65 and older are the first to be vaccinated in Phase 2
Spring 2021 is the anticipated time for the general public supply.
Yes. We are not limiting giving vaccine dose to Lyon County residents only. There is a large population of people who work in Lyon County, but lived in another county. However, the amount of vaccine that we receive is limited, and may vary from week to week. When we announce an open vaccination clinic, we will be scheduling people on a first-come, first-served basis.
We are still in the early days of vaccine distribution and doses are in limited supply. The number of vaccine dose that Lyon County receives changes from week to week. For an updated number, please see KDHE's vaccination dashboard:
The Lyon County is currently vaccinating residents that fall under Phase 2. Please check to see which phase you qualify under.
Yes. The vaccine is in limited supply and we want to make sure every does is administered. People who don't have an appointment will be turned away at the door.
We are creating a waiting list of those 65 and older who want to be vaccinated. You can be added to this waiting list by calling our COVID-19 Hotline at 620-208-3741. Once on this waiting list, you will be called to schedule an appointment to be vaccinated.
To schedule an appointment, you first need to be put on our waiting list. To be put on the waiting list, call our COVID-19 Hotline at 620-208-3741. We will contact every person on the waiting list and schedule them an appointment to be vaccinated. Due to the limited supply of vaccine and the length of the waiting list, it might be some time before everyone on the list is scheduled. If you are on the waiting, please don't call about your status. We will call you when vaccine is available for you.
Many providers and pharmacies may have their own lists of patients to schedule for vaccination once they receive vaccine. Lyon County Public Health does not have a list for the mass vaccination clinics. Our clinics are available to everyone 65 and older.
In the coming weeks and months, the vaccine will be available in more and more places, and in greater quantities. Please be patient. If the vaccine is available from your provider before you can schedule an appointment at the mass vaccination clinic, please take it.
This is something we are very concerned about. Beating this pandemic is a community effort. The quickest and easiest way to schedule an appointment is online. If you know of family members or neighbors that need assistance to make an appointment, please reach out to them and make a plan to help schedule them when the next clinic is announced.
If scheduling online is not an option, and you need assistance making an appointment, you can call our COVID-19 Hotline at 620-208-3741. These appointments are very limited, so we encourage you to book your appointment for yourself or your loved ones online.
No. If you have already had your first vaccination dose, we will be contacting you directly to schedule your second dose.
Lyon County Public health is providing the vaccine for free through our vaccination clinics.
Healthcare providers and pharmacies will offer the vaccine in the future and may have an administrative fee of approximately $20 that may be charged by the provider to your insurance provider or to you; however, all providers must agree to provide you with the vaccine even if you are uninsured or unable to pay the administrative fee.
Yes, it is recommended that even vaccinated individuals practice an abundance of caution by continuing to wear a mask, social distance, wash their hands and avoid large gatherings -- especially indoors.
