Schedule an Appointment
To schedule an appointment with the County, the individual or the individual’s representative must register on behalf of the resident online: https://www.sedgwickcounty.org/covid-19/vaccine/schedule/

If an online appointment cannot be made, the resident or their representative may dial (316) 660-1029 to schedule an appointment over the phone.

Representatives are welcome to join the resident at the appointment but will not receive the vaccine at that time unless they meet qualifications in one of the vaccine populations currently being vaccinated.

People with appointments will have the following locations to receive the vaccine Mondays through Saturdays.

  • 223 S. Main, Wichita | Former Central Library | Clinic for people in Phase 1 + Phase 2 (will include Phases 3,4 on Monday, March 22)

  • 7001W. 21st St. | K-State Research & Extension | KDHE/ Kansas National Guard temporary clinic for people in Phase 1 + Phase 2 (will include Phases 3,4 on Monday, March 22)

  • 777 E. Waterman, Wichita | Wichita Transit Operations | DOSE 2 ONLY - Drive-thru clinic for people who have mobility difficulties

Please arrive to your vaccine appointment no more than 15 minutes early and plan to allow at least 45 minutes for the vaccine appointment. The earlier you arrive to your appointment, the longer you have to wait on site.

For people who prefer to speak in a language other than English, no cost interpreting services are available at the vaccine clinic at 223 S. Main to help you receive a vaccine. 
Vaccine Questions
Contact your medical provider prior to the vaccine appointment if you have questions about how the vaccine may interact with your medical condition and medications you take.

Please direct general questions about the COVID-19 vaccine to (316) 660-1022; this line is not for scheduling appointments.
County Pledge
As more vaccine is received, the Sedgwick County Health Department will vaccinate more people while following guidance from CDC, KDHE, and Sedgwick County Health Officer Dr. Garold Minns. The vaccination schedule is designed to assure that all who want to be vaccinated will have that opportunity. The implementation of the vaccination schedule is dependent on the manufacturing and distribution schedule from vaccine providers. The County will not schedule more appointments than the vaccine available.
