KANSAS CITY, Mo. — More than 20 Kansas City metro long-term care facilities in Kansas have at least 50% of their staff vaccinated against COVID-19, according to a new dashboard from the Kansas Department for Health and Environment.

Gov. Laura Kelly announced on Friday that the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services and KDHE created the dashboard to track vaccination rates of Kansas health care workers at long-term care facilities ahead “of the federal regulation requiring staff vaccinations within the nation’s more than 15,000 Medicare and Medicaid-participating nursing homes.”

“The importance of vaccinations for individuals who work with the older population so profoundly impacted by COVID-19 can’t be overstated as the decision to get vaccinated can not only protect their health, but the health of their colleagues, patients and their families, and the communities they serve,” KDADS Secretary Laura Howard said in a news release.
