COVID-19 vaccine distribution in the Greater Kansas City region
Vaccine distribution in the Kansas City metropolitan region is under way, but supplies remain very limited. Public health departments are working closely with state partners and with other health organizations designated as vaccinators by the states to coordinate and distribute the vaccine.
We encourage everyone in the metropolitan region who wants to receive a COVID-19 vaccine to:
- Monitor your local public health department’s website for additional information.
- Do not arrive at vaccination sites seeking a vaccine; all vaccinations will be conducted by appointment ONLY.
- Any person registered to get the vaccine must commit to the appointment to help ensure doses are not wasted.
Local public health departments will share specific directions as more vaccines becomes available in our area.

Most public health departments in the Kansas City region have developed surveys to help identify residents who want to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available to them under Missouri and Kansas priority guidelines.
Use the following links to complete the survey for your county, if available, or contact your local public health department for more information.
Even as vaccine is being distributed, please continue to stay home when sick, wash your hands regularly, wear a mask, avoid crowds, keep 6 feet of space between yourself and others, and get tested for COVID-19 if you’ve been exposed to the coronavirus or have symptoms.
We will update this page as more information becomes available to include vaccination events and what to expect when getting vaccinated.
