WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Kansans who were waiting to get their COVID-19 booster shot are now cleared to get one.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced Wednesday that all fully vaccinated adult Kansans can get a booster shot.

You can get the booster if it has been at least six months since your received your second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or at least two months since you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“Expanding access to booster shots will help us put an end to this deadly pandemic,” Governor Laura Kelly said in a news release. “Whether you are considering your first shot or signing up for a booster, I urge everyone to get the facts and get vaccinated.”

The KDHE says that available data shows all three of the COVID-19 vaccines approved or authorized in the United States continue to be highly effective in reducing the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, even against the COVID-19 delta variant.
