Reno County moves to Phase 5 in vaccinations

Posted Mar 29, 2021 3:31 PM

Starting today, Reno County residents age 18 and over are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Governor Kelly announced the statewide transition to Phase 5 in hopes that no vaccine goes to waste. ā€œWith the anticipated increase in supply from the federal government, we must get every dose of vaccine into arms quickly,ā€ Governor Kelly said. ā€œI strongly encourage every Kansan to get the COVID-19 vaccine so we can get back to school, back to work, and back to normal.ā€

As of March 26, 24.06% of Reno County residents have received at least one dose of vaccine. A second dose clinic is scheduled for Saturday, April 3 at the Sports Arena for those who received their first dose there on March 2.

The Reno County Health Department is also operating a vaccination clinic Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Fellowship Hall of the First United Methodist Church,101 E. 1st Avenue (across from the Post Office). Appointments can be scheduled online at https://forms.renogov.org/rchd/covid19-registration/.
