WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Cheney Fire Department will host a “Home for the Holidays” vaccine incentive clinic on Sunday, Dec. 19, from 1 – 4 p.m. in partnership with the Sedgwick County Health Department (SCHD).
People receiving their first dose of vaccine can choose from incentives, including household items, children’s toys, electronics, dog crates, games, and more. People receiving additional doses, including boosters, will receive limited-run T-shirts.
“By offering these incentives, we hope to provide added encouragement for people to get the first shot or complete their series,” says Adrienne Byrne, director, SCHD. “More importantly, we hope people will come out to protect themselves and their loved ones heading into the holidays.”
SCHD will be administering Pfizer vaccine for ages five and older and Johnson & Johnson vaccine for ages 18 and older at no cost. No appointments are necessary, and people can get vaccinated even if they received their previous shot(s) somewhere else.
The clinic in Cheney follows a successful incentive clinic held in Park City on Dec. 4. At that event, 59 people received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, more than half of the total vaccines administered.
