Coronavirus in Kansas: One-third of state vaccinated with at least one dose

Coronavirus in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The state of Kansas is getting close to having one million people vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine.

Since Friday morning, another 27,600 Kansans have received the first dose of vaccine. It brings the total to 995,616, or 34.2% of the state’s population.

“Getting a third of Kansans their first dose is a significant milestone for our state, and further evidence that we are well on our way back to that sense of normal we’ve been seeking for over a year,” Gov. Laura Kelly said in a news release.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says 21.2% of the population has completed getting their vaccinations, either through two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or with one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

The KDHE releases the vaccine and coronavirus case updates each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Out of 3,935 people tested, 483 came back as positive for the coronavirus over the weekend.

There have been 20 new hospitalizations linked to COVID-19 since Friday. The state does not track recoveries.

The state’s death toll linked to COVID-19 decreased by 8. The KDHE did not explain the decrease this time. In previous news releases, it has said that officials reviewed the deaths and found that COVID-19 was not the main cause or contributing cause of death.
