GREAT BEND, Kan. (KSNW) – Barton County anticipates receiving a limited number of COVID 19 vaccine doses (400) on Tuesday, February 9, and will conduct a drive-thru first come first served
vaccination clinic on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 2 p.m. at the Barton County Fairgrounds Expo III Building.
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, it is likely the event will end before 5 p.m.

It is not required, however, to expedite your vaccination, eligible persons may visit www.bartoncounty.org to download and complete the vaccine consent form found under
