Schedule Your COVID-19 Vaccination

We are currently providing COVID-19 vaccinations for residents of Kansas and Missouri who are 12 years of age or older.

We provide vaccinations by appointment only. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the appointment. Here’s how to schedule yours. En español.

*If you have insurance, enter the information into MyChart or bring your insurance card and photo ID with you to your appointment. You will not be charged, but your insurance may be billed for an administrative fee. If you are not insured, bring a photo ID. A federal fund will be billed for the administration fee. No fee is charged to anyone at a vaccine appointment, and no one will receive a bill. No one will be turned away.

Which COVID-19 vaccines are offered? 

We offer the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines, which are administered in 2 doses several weeks apart. After receiving your first dose, please promptly log in to MyChart to schedule your second dose.

It is very important that you receive both doses to develop full protection against COVID-19. The option to schedule your second dose will become available to you as soon as you’ve received your first. If you have MyChart on your smartphone, you can even schedule your second appointment during the 15-minute observation period after your first shot.

The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine is a single-dose vaccine. Only 1 appointment is required. Side effects are similar to the other vaccines. We do not currently offer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at our locations in the Kansas City area.

3rd dose COVID-19 vaccines for some patients

We are now scheduling 3rd dose COVID-19 vaccinations for patients who are immunocompromised. We are following COVID-19 ACIP and CDC vaccine recommendations to determine who is currently eligible to receive a “booster” dose.

If you are not a patient of the health system, you will need to speak with your healthcare provider, or you may have the option of receiving the 3rd dose at your local pharmacy.

Your 3rd dose vaccine will be from the same manufacturer as your earlier 2 doses, either Pfizer or Moderna. If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, there is no guidance at this time on a 2nd dose, so we are not providing a 2nd dose for those patients at this time.

The CDC recommends that if you recently received your 2nd dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you must wait at least 28 days to receive your 3rd dose.

If you are a patient of the health system, you can log in to your MyChart account, select Menu and Schedule an Appointment. If you are eligible for a 3rd dose, that type of appointment option will be available to you.

Do not schedule a vaccination if you currently have COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19 or are in quarantine or isolation. Wait until you are free of symptoms and no longer in quarantine. If you have severe or long-lasting symptoms, contact your primary care provider for guidance.
