Archived: Corrected: County’s COVID-19 Clinics Continue through Next Week


(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – Both COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be in place through next week, February 13. One clinic is at INTRUST Bank Arena to vaccinate health care workers and residents aged 80 and older who are mobile. SCHD has partnered with Wichita Transit and will offer a drive thru vaccine clinic at the Wichita Transit Operations Center for residents aged 80 and older who have mobility difficulties.

The County plans to receive 7,000 Pfizer doses weekly for the foreseeable future. Appointments will not be opened unless the vaccine is available.

Schedule An Appointment:
To schedule an appointment with the County, the individual or the individual’s caretaker must register on behalf of the resident online:

Caregivers are welcome to join the resident at the appointment but caregivers will not receive the vaccine at that time. Vaccine appointments for caregivers and others outside of the 80 and older category will open at a future date. 

For those aged 80 and older, if an online appointment cannot be made, the individual or caretaker may dial (316) 660-1029 to schedule an appointment over the phone.

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. The County will not schedule more appointments than the vaccine available.
