Kansas continues to hold vaccine and testing clinics statewide with the emergence of Delta variant

Coronavirus in Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW)  – Local health departments, providers, and community groups are continuing to hold free COVID-19 vaccine and testing clinics with the emergence of the Delta variant.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said while infection rates have declined in Kansas, the emergence of the new variant poses a unique risk to communities across Kansas. The KDHE says Kansans should stay safe by continuing to social distance and wear masks while around unvaccinated people.

According to the CDC, the Delta variant is 60% more transmissible than the B. 117 variant which was previously the dominant strain. The new variant appears to be spreading most quickly in communities that have the lowest vaccination rates.
