Members of the Douglas County community can now request COVID-19 vaccine clinics at individual businesses and events, Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health officials said Wednesday.
Though Douglas County continues to have one of the highest vaccination rates in the state of Kansas — 58% of the county’s eligible population has received at least one dose, and 51% has completed the two-dose vaccine regimen — health officials continue to urge those who haven’t yet been vaccinated to do so.
LDCPH is seeking to fully vaccinate 70% of the county’s eligible population by Aug. 31.
“While our community members have done a great job so far in coming forward to get vaccinated, our partners in the community are coming together with new strategies to increase access to the vaccine and offer potential incentives so that we can work to get an even higher vaccination rate in our community,” Charlie Bryan, chair of the Vaccination Planning Unit of Douglas County’s Unified Command response, said in a statement.
