HEALTH DEPARTMENT OFFERING COVID VACCINE FOR AGES 6 MONTHS AND OVER

Reno County, Kan – June 21, 2022 – The Reno County Health Department will begin offering Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations for children aged 6 months and over. Appointments are currently being scheduled for early next week. 

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) announced Monday that they would follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation that all children 6 months through 5 years of age should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) vaccine advisers have determined that the benefit of the vaccine outweighs the risks, and that the vaccine has been “well-tolerated” among the children who received them in clinical trials. All children, including children who have already had COVID-19, should get vaccinated.

The Health Department is offering the Moderna vaccine for children aged 6 months to 5 years. They will receive a 2-dose series separated by 4-8 weeks.

The Reno County Health Department is administering vaccines during their normal operating hours. Walk-ins are accepted for ages 12 and over, but appointments are required for children 11 years or younger. Call 620-694-2900 and select option 6 for scheduling. The vaccine is free to any Reno County resident, regardless of citizen status or insurance. 

The Health Department is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 7:30am to 6pm, Wednesday from 9am to 6pm, and Friday from 7:30am to noon. Visit www.vaccines.gov to find a full list of locations and availability.
