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.

Correction to 3/8/21 Media Briefing: During Monday’s media briefing with County Manager Stolz, he misstated the amount of vaccines received. It should have been 111,268 doses.
