COVID-19 Vaccine in
Johnson County, MO
Johnson County Missouri
COVID-19 Vaccine Registration
The vaccination registration will add you to a list to be called and schedule your appointment. This is based on the current Phase and tier as defined by the State of Missouri. You will be notified to schedule an appointment when clinics are available.
All vaccination clinics are scheduled based on vaccine availability allocated by the state.
If you have registered with JCCHS to receive your COVID vaccine, you may be wondering why you haven’t been contacted for an appointment. Here’s some background information.
- JCCHS has received a small number of prime doses to host the first round of clinics, followed by second doses.
- JCCHS is currently awaiting additional shipments of prime dose vaccine. Once received, more clinics will be scheduled.
- There are approximately 6,500 community members interested in receiving their vaccine.
- Community members are scheduled based on the current Phase and Tiers defined by the state, and will be scheduled based on when they registered and in which Phase/Tier they qualify.
- With the state’s current allocation program, only 8% of state available vaccine will be provided to local public health agencies across the state.
