Archived: Sedgwick County Expands COVID-19 Vaccine Phase 2 to People Aged 83 and Older


(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – Based on the number of appointments scheduled so far, Sedgwick County is now accepting appointments for residents aged 83 and older for their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The County is focusing on people 83 and older, due to their likelihood of serious complications if they test positive for COVID-19. The Sedgwick County Health Department will provide the COVID-19 vaccine at INTRUST Bank Arena, 500 E. Waterman St., Wichita 67202.  

Additionally, if residents have mobility difficulties, they may receive the vaccine in their vehicle and be observed without coming into the Arena. Mobile vaccine clinics will be scheduled in the future.

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 83 and older category will open at a future date. 

For those ages 83 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.   

Please allow at least 45 minutes for the vaccine appointment and follow the steps below.

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.
