Adults (18-years of age or older) who live or work in Pottawatomie County are eligible to receive their vaccine through the Pottawatomie County Health Department.  Vaccines are still available by appointment only. If you are interested in the vaccine, you must sign-up (see first paragraph above) to be contacted for an appointment.  While all adults are now eligible, we are still trying to concentrate on those with medical conditions and/or who work in high-contact professions.  Once the vaccine becomes more widely available, it will be faster and easier to inoculate all those who wish the vaccine.

In a news release today, Governor Laura Kelly announced that no cost COVID-19 testing will continue to be available at community testing sites throughout Kansas
