The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is leading the state COVID-19 public health response and planning efforts for vaccination delivery. In addition, local county governments (and health departments) will have up-to-date information specific to your community. We expect to learn more about the vaccine distribution plan and timeline for Kansas communities in the coming weeks.
Where to find accurate, up-to-date information:
We urge you to continue to visit the official websites of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE). If you have questions about COVID-19, call KDHE’s hotline from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at (866) 534-3463 or email COVIDfirstname.lastname@example.org. For 24/7 assistance, call the special Epidemiology hotline at (877) 427-7317.
If you think you need medical attention, contact a healthcare provider – which may include a local health department or safety net clinic for those who are unestablished with a physician. For information locally, follow local media outlets.
