TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – With the increased presence of the delta variant in Kansas, local health departments, providers, and community groups are continuing to hold free COVID-19 vaccine and testing clinics.

The events listed below are part of a sustained effort to mobilize Kansans to get vaccinated and/or tested to stop the spread of COVID-19. Free testing is available to everyone in Kansas, regardless of vaccination status and even if you have been tested before.

According to the CDC, the delta variant is twice as infectious as 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.
