KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Douglas County held its largest COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Wednesday, vaccinating more than 4,000 residents.

Volunteers at the clinic, located at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, administered 4,092 doses to eligible residents.

Roughly 400 volunteers were on-site for the event.

Dan Partridge, director at Lawrence Douglas County Public Health, told 41 Action at the beginning of March that no vaccine doses at the drive-thru clinic have gone to waste.

The county’s COVID-19 vaccination plan states that the fairgrounds are available through spring as a mass vaccination site.
