Appointments Now Open for People Aged 16 and Older

(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – Per the directive from Governor Kelly, Sedgwick County is now scheduling appointments for people aged 16 and older. Due to this announcement from the Governor, the Board of County Commission will not call a special meeting today. 

“This is a great win for people in Sedgwick County,” said Commission Chairman Pete Meitzner. “We appreciate the State’s cooperation in this and look forward to getting more people vaccinated.”

Note, at this time, the Pfizer vaccine is approved for people aged 16 and older. The Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines are approved for people aged 18 and older; there is no vaccine authorized for children. Sedgwick County has Pfizer vaccine and a limited amount of Johnson & Johnson.
