SHAWNEE COUNTY, Kan. (KSNT) – A health organization in Shawnee County is planning a new way Monday to get vaccines to people unable to leave home.

The Shawnee County Vaccine Collaborative, a group effort between the Shawnee County Health Department and Shawnee County COVID-19 Incident Response Team, said it is working with partners from the private sector to get shots to people considered homebound. The group said anyone who can’t leave home, or knows someone who might be considered homebound, can sign up to get an at-home vaccination one of two ways:

  • Email
  • Call 785-251-4949

The Shawnee County Vaccine Collaborative will ask anyone who calls or emails for the following information:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Email (if available)
