COVID-19 Vaccine Incentive Clinic Coming to Cheney Dec. 19
(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – Cheney Fire Department will be hosting a “Home for the Holidays” vaccine incentive clinic on Sunday, Dec. 19 from 1–4 p.m. in partnership with Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD).
People receiving first doses of vaccine can choose from incentives including household items, children’s toys, electronics, dog crates, games, and more. People receiving additional doses, including boosters, will receive limited-run t-shirts. All who attend can enjoy free hot chocolate.
“By offering these incentives, we hope to provide added encouragement for people to get a first shot or complete their series,” says Adrienne Byrne, Director of SCHD. “More importantly, we hope people will come out to protect themselves and their loved ones heading into the holidays.”
SCHD will be administering Pfizer vaccine for ages 5 and older and Johnson & Johnson vaccine for ages 18 and older at no cost. No appointments are necessary, and people can get vaccinated even if they received their prior shot(s) somewhere else.
The clinic in Cheney follows a successful incentive clinic held in Park City on December 4. At that event, 59 people received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, more than half of the total vaccines administered.
