(785) 270-4786

Please note, this process is a waiting list only, at no time is the vaccine is guaranteed.

Opening the call line: At 8:00 a.m., the call-in line will open. Current eligible Kansas residents can call the line to get put on a waiting list. They will be asked to show up at the clinic at a designated time for any unused vaccine at the end of the day due to no-shows. The list will not roll over for the next day, individuals will need to call in again to be placed on the list.

Closing the call line: When the call-in list has been filled, callers will hear an automated message that says, “Thank you for calling the Stormont Vail Walk-In COVID-19 vaccine scheduling line. We have reached our maximum number of potential walk-in patients for today. Please try again tomorrow at 8 a.m. when the line re-opens.”

End of the day follow-up:  All individuals who were put on the waiting list that did not get called to come to the clinic will receive a call by end of the business day to let them know we are not taking any more individuals for the day and to try back on a future day.

Immunization with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component to reducing COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations, deaths and to help restore societal functioning. The more people who receive it, the better the immunity in the community, which will result in less spread of the virus.

Benefits of Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine

Answering your Questions about the COVID-19 Vaccine

Patients receive their vaccination information on their paperwork when they depart. There is no current requirement to produce proof of vaccination and more specifically, no requirement for a particular format of proof.

Everyone should continue to follow the precautions in place to continue to protect each other from spreading the virus. Washing your hands, social distancing, avoiding large crowds and wearing a mask will continue to be the best way to protect our families and ourselves.

Vaccines are new and the results are still being tracked and reviewed by each company. Until the vaccine has been in use for a period of time, we won’t know how long immunity lasts or what the long-term effects will be.

The vaccine is safe! This vaccine has followed normal procedures that are in place including testing and FDA Emergency Approval. With a worldwide focus on creating a vaccine, this vaccine was created with more resources than typical medications have. As with any medication or vaccine, there are possible side effects that include:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain

  • Pfizer requires 2 doses to be 21 days apart
  • Moderna requires 2 doses to be 28 days apart
  • Johnson & Johnson (Jansen)  is a single dose vaccine

If insured, please bring your insurance card. The vaccine is free but an administration fee may be charged to insurance plans. For uninsured individuals, a federal fund will be billed for the administration fee. No money or payment is required at the appointment.

There is not enough evidence as to how long a previously infected person is protected from COVID-19 but current data suggests immunity for the first 90 days after infection.

No. There is no live virus in the vaccine.
