There are approximately 45,000 people aged 12 to 17 in Sedgwick County. 

The Pfizer vaccine was declared safe and effective during trials involving more than 1,000 children. The vaccine was previously authorized for those 16 and older. 

The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine approved for people aged 12 and older; the Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines are approved for people aged 18 and older. Sedgwick County will continue to administer the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. 

Vaccine Questions:

Contact your medical provider prior to the vaccine appointment if you have questions about how the vaccine may interact with your medical condition and medications you take. 

Please continue to direct general questions about the COVID-19 vaccine to (316) 660-1022; this line is not for scheduling appointments.  

County Pledge:

As more vaccine is received, the Sedgwick County Health Department will vaccinate more people while following guidance from CDC, KDHE, and Sedgwick County Health Officer Dr. Garold Minns. The vaccination schedule is designed to assure that all who want to be vaccinated will have that opportunity. The implementation of the vaccination schedule is dependent on the manufacturing and distribution schedule from vaccine providers.  Updated information is available at
