Reno County Health Department asks remaining 65 and over to call to schedule a vaccine appointment

Coronavirus in Kansas

RENO COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – The Reno County Health Department is asking county residents, who are age 65 and over and have not received their vaccine, to please call and schedule an appointment for either March 8 or 15. This includes those who have already pre-registered.

“It’s becoming increasingly difficult to schedule for the remaining clinics as many have received the vaccine elsewhere,” says Reno County Health Director Karla Nichols. “We want to make sure we don’t miss anyone who still wants the vaccine.”

To schedule an appointment, call 620-694-2900 and select option 6 when prompted.

There will be a first dose clinic on March 8, from 8 a.m. to Noon at the Hutchinson Sports Arena, and a second dose clinic on March 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for those who received their first dose on February 5. The clinic on March 15 will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Please note the vaccination site will not be accepting walk-ins.

In the coming weeks, the health department will provide an update for the next groups in phase 2, including congregate settings and high-contact critical workers. The department has been meeting with area businesses to plan on-site distribution clinics and public vaccination sites.

For information on the vaccine, visit the Reno County website. For assistance getting to the vaccination clinic and returning home, please contact RCAT at 620-694-2913.
