Updated COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Posted on Friday January 15, 2021
Vaccine Update: 1-20-21 1:45 pm – Platte County Health Department asks Platte County residents interested in receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine to complete a brief survey.

Vaccine Update: 1-20-21  1:45 pm – Platte County Health Department has used the 271 doses allotted to us to vaccinate individuals in Phase 1A (Residents and Employees of Long-term Care Facilities; Patient-facing Healthcare Workers; EMS). Vaccine availability has been expanded to individuals in Phase 1B, Tier 1, but PCHD currently has no vaccine in our possession. However, that can change with little advance notice. To help us prepare, we ask  Platte County residents interested in receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine to complete a brief survey described below. If you are a Kansas City, Missouri resident, please use this survey.

Based on availability, and guidance from the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services (MO DHSS) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Platte County Health Department will assist in the coordination of COVID-19 vaccine administration based on a changing priority system. Individuals will be identified to receive the vaccine based on occupation and risk status (age, medical conditions, etc.).

Once the vaccine is made available for your phase and tier, the Platte County Health Department will use your information from the survey to contact you with further instructions on how to schedule an appointment to receive your vaccination. However, completing this survey does not guarantee a vaccination appointment or save your place in line. You may be contacted for additional information as prioritization tiers may change.

Announcements about vaccine availability will be made in this area of the website, through the media (TV, newspaper, radio and social media). Updates will include dates, times and locations.
