Weekly Vaccine and Testing Clinics

With the increased presence of the Delta variant in the region, local health departments, providers, and community groups are continuing to hold free COVID-19 vaccine and testing clinics. The more infectious Delta variant poses a dangerous risk to communities across Kansas. The events are part of a sustained effort to mobilize Kansans to get vaccinated and/or tested to stop the spread of COVID-19 to protect themselves and loved ones. 

According to the CDC, the Delta variant is twice as infectious as the B. 117 variant, which was previously the dominant strain. The new variant appears to be spreading most quickly in communities that have the lowest vaccination rates. Over the last few weeks, nearly all patients who died of COVID-19 were unvaccinated. It’s essential for Kansans to stay safe by continuing to social distance, wear masks while around unvaccinated people, and get tested if you have symptoms or have possibly been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Free testing is available to everyone in Kansas, regardless of vaccination status and even if you have been tested before.  

Testing and vaccination events are listed by county then date. Additional events may be happening across the state. If you don't see an event near you, talk to your local health department.
