Chart to Help with COVID Vaccine Decisions

Rebecca Johnson, SEKMCHD Director.

Rebecca Johnson, the administrator of Southeast Kansas Multi-county Health Department created a chart to help residents with COVID-19 Vaccine decision making.

“There is so much information out there, so we wanted to help our residents keep it all straight,” she said. “It’s updated now, but if Pfizer gets approved for the 5-11 year-olds, then it will need updated again.”

“We now have our orders for all of these vaccines, the additional doses and all of the booster doses,” she said. “We are able to give them in our office or if a business or school would like us to come to them, we can do that as well.”

“I believe this week, there may be a decision made for the Pfizer 5-11 year old doses,” she said.

The department is located at 524 S. Lowman, Ft. Scott, KS 66701, with the following contact info:
