Governor announces vaccine distribution plan
Governor Laura Kelly has announced her administration’s final COVID-19 distribution order for population groups in Kansas. The vaccine will be administered in five phases, beginning with those most at risk of contracting or becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 and ending with all Kansans at large.
“These COVID-19 vaccination phase groups were created using guidance from national and state public health experts and with input from the Kansas Coronavirus Vaccine Advisory Council, or COVAC, which represents a diverse group of populations in Kansas,” Kelly said. “My priority remains providing every Kansan with updates and information on vaccine schedules as we get them and to get everyone vaccinated as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
Phase 1: Health care workers, residents or patients in long-term care facilities and senior housing, workers critical to pandemic response continuity. Phase 1 groups have already begun to receive vaccines.
Phase 2: Persons 65 or older, those who live in congregate settings, and high-contact critical workers.
