LAWRENCE (KSNT) — There will soon be one less way to get a COVID-19 vaccine in Lawrence.
Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health said it planned to phase out drive-thru hours at its vaccination center at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. You have one more week to take advantage of the option, if you need a vaccine.
Hours for the clinic are:
- May 24-26
- 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

- 9 a.m. to Noon
Beginning June 1, 2021, vaccinations will move from the drive-thru site to the health department’s Community Health Facility. Appointments will be needed for a vaccination and can be made online through the health department.
There are other locations in Lawrence where you will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine, including primary care clinics. According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, there are nearly 47,000 people who are fully vaccinated in Douglas County.
