Saline County: Approximately 34% of adults vaccinated

Posted Apr 01, 2021 10:38 PM

Following is the Saline County Health Department's Vax Facts information for Thursday.

VACCINATION REGISTRATION OPEN TO EVERYONE 16 AND UP

The community health partners strongly encourage 16- and 17-year-olds to register, as we hope to receive more of the Pfizer vaccine in the future. Pfizer is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently on the market approved for those 16 to 18.

Currently, Moderna is the primary vaccine available in Saline County. We are also seeing limited stocks of the Janssen vaccine. Both of these vaccines are approved only for those who are 18 years old and older.  

The Saline County Community Health Partners are actively registering and scheduling everyone age 16-years-old and older. If you or your teen would like to be vaccinated against COVID-19, please register for your appointment today.

Saline County has vaccinated more than 14,000 members of our community against COVID-19 thus far.

Those without access to the internet can register via phone or by visiting the Salina Senior Services Center.

Please remember to be cordial with the medical personnel who are working tirelessly to serve the Saline County Community.
