Saline County officials are making distribution plans for when larger quantities of vaccine arrive.
According to the Saline County Health Department, a semi- permanent centralized vaccination location is under construction. Based on vaccine supply, this site will open next week to Phase 1 healthcare workers on the waiting list.
A community vaccination scheduling website is under construction and will be available to Phase 1 and 2 populations as they become eligible.
KDHE has requested any county who has excess vaccines after completing their Phase 1 vaccinations send those additional vaccines to other counties in Kansas who need them to complete their Phase 1 vaccinations.
The ability to vaccinate the local population is dependent upon the number and frequency with which we receive vaccines from KDHE. Thus far, more than 1,600 Phase 1 healthcare workers have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
