From Barton County...
Governor Kelly announced Thursday her administration’s COVID-19 distribution order for population groups in Kansas. Kelly reported these phase groups were created using guidance from national and state public health experts and input from the Kansas Coronavirus Vaccine Advisory Council (COVAC).
To date, the Barton County Health Department has collaborated with community partners to administer all of the vaccine allotted to the health department at this time. This effort has fulfilled the majority of the KDHE guidance to vaccinate health care workers, emergency responders and other frontline workers as outlined in Phase 1 of the Governor’s plan.
It is anticipated we will receive more vaccines in the near future. We will work diligently to distribute these vaccines following the guidance of KDHE. The health department will be providing future information and instruction to the next vaccine recipients as soon as more doses arrive.
You can find the vaccination phase groups plan on the new Kansas Vaccination website located at: www.kansasvaccine.gov/. This site includes information concerning the amount of vaccines Kansas has received, common questions and facts, and information on vaccine safety.
