County Continues Mobile COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics; Will Close Community Vaccine and Testing Sites in April
(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – COVID-19 mobile vaccination clinics and some testing will continue to be offered by the Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD) as vaccine and testing demand decreases and SCHD moves to its mission of ensuring access to health services for vulnerable populations, including the uninsured.
- For the remainder of 2022, SCHD will hold mobile vaccination clinics throughout Sedgwick County. See SCHD website for locations.
- Saturday, April 30 is the last day of the Community Vaccination Clinic at 223 S. Main, Wichita.
- Thursday, April 28 is the last day of the Testing Site at 4115 E. Harry.
- On Monday, May 2, no-cost sampling and testing for uninsured persons only will begin at the SCHD Clinic, 2716 W. Central, Wichita. Appointments can be made beginning April 25 by calling 316-660-7300.
COVID-19 Data Dashboard on the SCHD Website
- Friday, April 1 is the last day the Dashboard will be updated.
- Two COVID-19 StoryMaps with case and vaccine data will continue to be updated weekly.
“We are not out of the woods with COVID-19, but the county is in a different place now than we were a year ago — or even a few months ago,” said Adrienne Byrne, Director of SCHD. “There are more community options now for testing and vaccine that didn’t exist before.” “Now seems like the right time for the Health Department to narrow our response to mobile vaccine clinics that reach high-risk individuals and vulnerable communities. We are moving back to our core public health mission, which is serving the underserved,” Byrne added.
