KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Johnson County has launched a survey to notify residents in Phase 2 of the state's vaccination plan when they will be eligible to receive a vaccine.

In Kansas, those in Phase 2 include adults 65 and older, employees and residents in congregate settings, and high-contact critical workers, including first responders, grocery store workers, and K-12 school and child care staff.

Johnson County residents who fall into those categories and want to be notified when the vaccine becomes available to them should complete the survey on the county’s website.

Taking the survey does not create an appointment or reserve a vaccine, the county said. After receiving a notification from the county, residents will be instructed on how to schedule a vaccine.

Phase 2 of the vaccination plan is expected to begin by early February.

The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment said Friday it is nearing completion of vaccinating health care workers in Phase 1 of the state’s plan.

The county does not have a list for the general public to sign up for the vaccine.
