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.

How much vaccine is allotted to Lyon County?

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:

How do I schedule an appointment to be vaccinated?

Click the "Schedule Appointment" button at the top of the page, and follow the series of prompts. Vaccine is limited and appointments fill up fast. Please be patient.

I have been contacted by my doctor. Am I on your list to be vaccinated?

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.

My family member does not have internet. How can they schedule an appointment?

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.

I have received my first dose. Do I have to go through this process again for my second dose?

No. If you have already had your first vaccination dose, we will have your second dose scheduled at your appointment for you primary dose. If you were vaccinated elsewhere, please contact the place you received your primary dose to schedule your second dose.

Cost

What will be the cost of getting vaccinated?

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.

Safety and Effectiveness

I've been vaccinated. Should I continue to wear a mask, social distance and avoid larger gatherings?

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.
