Coronavirus in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Sedgwick County said both COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be in place through next week, February 13. One clinic is at INTRUST Bank Arena to vaccinate health care workers and residents aged 80 and older who are mobile. SCHD has partnered with Wichita Transit and will offer a drive-thru vaccine clinic at the Wichita Transit Operations Center for residents aged 80 and older who have mobility difficulties.

The county plans to receive 7,000 Pfizer doses weekly for the foreseeable future. Appointments will not be opened unless the vaccine is available.

Please arrive to your vaccine appointment no more than 15 minutes early and plan to allow at least 45 minutes for the vaccine appointment. Based on staffing, average wait times for appointments range from 60 to 90 minutes.
