CHC/SEK to offer Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine
PITTSBURG, Kan. – The Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas now offers the one-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Eligible residents can get the vaccine at all CHC/SEK clinics by appointment.
The FDA approved the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to people ages 18 and older. It’s a single dose rather than the required two doses for Pfizer and Moderna.
To schedule a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, you can go to chcsek.org and click the COVID Vaccination Form button. Once you complete the form and select the “first dose” button, there’s an option to select Johnson & Johnson or Moderna. CHC/SEK says its representatives will contact you to schedule a date for the vaccine.
For those without web access, you can call the health center toll-free number, 866-888-8650 and a second number for Spanish-speakers 620-240-8940 to make vaccination appointments.
Various CHC/SEK Johnson & Johnson pop-up clinics will also be posted on the CHC/SEK Facebook page. You can find that Facebook page and others for local health departments here.
A release from the CHC/SEK states, “as with all COVID-19 vaccines, there is no out-of-pocket costs to vaccine recipients.”
