BARTON County, Kan. (KSNW) — Barton County announces they will move to phase 2 of their COVID-19 vaccination plan which includes a drive-through vaccination clinic. This comes after the county announced they have received more doses of the vaccine.

Eligible participants are based on KDHE guidance to vaccinate persons aged 65+, congregate settings, and high-contact critical workers as outlined in phase 2 of the Governor’s plan and only those individuals will be included in this event.

Due to the limited number of vaccine doses Barton County has received, officials say it is likely the event will end before 7 p.m.

Barton County anticipates receiving more vaccines in the near future and will continue to host additional drive-through clinics as soon as possible.
