CHCS offers Phase 3 and 4 COVID-19 vaccines

NOTE: This article has been updated to reflect the Governor's announcement that Kansas will move to Phase 5 on Monday, March 29. Phase 5 makes all adults age 16 and up eligible to receive the vaccine. 

Community HealthCare System is now receiving its own COVID-19 vaccine allocation and will begin offering the vaccine starting late the week of March 29.

Vaccines will be administered by appointment only at CHCS clinic locations in Centralia, Frankfort, Holton, Onaga, St. Marys, and Westmoreland.

Those who are eligible as of Monday, March 29 include those aged 16 and older. Find more information about the vaccine phases.  

Individuals who wish to receive the vaccine should call their clinic to schedule an appointment. Find your clinic’s phone number.

Please note the following.

  • The vaccine available at CHCS the week of March 29 is the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which requires only a single shot. Allocations in subsequent weeks may be from other manufacturers (Pfizer or Moderna). Those receiving the Janssen vaccine must be age 18 or older.
  • The Johnson & Johnson vaccine comes in five doses per vial, so patients must be scheduled in groups of five. This means that not all interested patients may be scheduled on a given day.
  • Patients need to bring their insurance cards to their vaccine appointment.
  • Patients will incur no out-of-pocket costs. Vaccine administration fees apply; insurance covers the fee.
  • For uninsured patients, CHCS will bill to government programs designed to help pay for COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Community HealthCare System strives to ensure that we do not waste vaccine doses. Because of challenges associated with the time limits for drawing vaccine doses, patients who make appointments need to keep them if at all possible. Patients who need to cancel should notify the clinic as early as possible so a replacement can be identified and scheduled.
