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. 

The Delta variant is more than twice as contagious as previous variants. Data shows this variant causes more severe illness in people who are unvaccinated. The COVID-19 vaccines reduce a person’s risk of contracting the virus -- including this variant -- and it has been shown to prevent severe disease and death. 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. Events marked with a (*) are student-focused clinics taking place at schools. Additional events may be happening across the state. If you don't see an event near you, talk to your local health department.
