Information for Medical Providers about Obtaining COVID-19 Vaccine
Questions regarding providing vaccine at your clinic can be directed to Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD) Vaccine Planning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SCHD can provide Pfizer - Comirnaty and Johnson and Johnson (J&J) vaccine.
Medical providers can obtain COVID-19 vaccine in two different ways:
- Contact SCHD at email@example.com and SCHD can partner with the clinic to provide vaccine at a planned clinic.
- In this method, SCHD is responsible for vaccine storage and reporting administration to KDHE. Therefore, SCHD would provide registration staff and cold chain staff. SCHD could also provide vaccinators if needed.
- This would fit best if a medical provider is hosting a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at a certain time with a large participation.
- Become a Kansas COVID-19 Vaccine Provider through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE). The electronic enrollment link and forms to review, including a new provider enrollment checklist, are found at www.kansasvaccine.gov/31/Providers. Questions or issues can be resolved via phone at 877-296-0464 or by email.
- In this method, medical providers can receive COVID-19 vaccine directly from KDHE or they can get transfers of vaccine from SCHD. Medical providers would be responsible for storage and reporting to KDHE in WebIZ.
- Once a medical provider is a Vaccine Provider through KDHE, the SCHD transfer is a simple electronic sign-up process and the medical provider staff will come to 1900 E. 9th ST N, Wichita (near I-135 and 9th St) to pick up the vaccine and associated supplies.
- This method is good if providers want to give vaccine to patients during a special clinic or during regular appointments.
