COVID-19 Vaccine Community Survey

Residents in south-central Kansas, including Sedgwick County, are asked to complete an anonymous survey about COVID-19 vaccination. Take the five to ten-minute online survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SCMRVACCINE2

Survey responses will help the Sedgwick County Health Department plan COVID-19 vaccination activities.

The Health Department partnered with KU School of Medicine – Wichita to create the survey. Regional and county-specific results will be analyzed by the KU School of Medicine – Wichita. This is a second community vaccine survey. The first was distributed in November 2020, before vaccines were available.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Elizabeth Ablah, Ph.D., MPH at eablah@kumc.edu. For questions about the rights of research participants, you may contact the KUMC Institutional Review Board (IRB) at 913-588-1240.

November 2020 Survey Results 

The University of Kansas School of Medicine–Wichita partnered with south-central Kansas counties to conduct a survey related to the likelihood residents may or may not get a COVID-19 vaccine. The purpose of the survey was to gauge the community’s interest in the survey, to plan for staffing levels to distribute or dispense the vaccine, and to learn where people go for information about COVID-19.

I got my COVID-19 vaccine, now what?

Do I have to get my second dose of the vaccine at the same location, what if I move cities?

You can get the second vaccine anywhere, and do not have to return to our site. You were issued a CDC card with your first dose and should keep that, as the information contained will ensure the correct second dose.

How do I schedule my second appointment, will it be at the same location?

At this time, the SCHD is working through the logistics of planning for future vaccine clinics. You will be notified when it is time to schedule your second appointment in the same ways as the first one (social media, local news, the SCHD website, your employer, etc.).

I’ve received the first dose of vaccine, but have since contracted the virus, when can I receive the second dose?

Follow normal positive testing guidelines and isolate for the appropriate amount of days.  If your second dose occurs during your isolation period, wait to receive the second dose until your isolation period has been completed. If your second dose occurs after your isolation period, go to your normally scheduled second appointment.
