(RILEY COUNTY, KS - February 2, 2021) Beginning Wednesday, February 3, the Riley County Vaccine Registration form will have a new look. The change was made in order to make the sign-up process more user friendly. If you already signed up, you do NOT need to do so again.
The form can be found at https://www.rileycountyks.gov//vaccinerequest People who do not wish to sign up online may do so by calling the health department at 785-565-6560 during business hours.
Later this week, postcards with information about how to sign up for the vaccine will be mailed to every household and business in Riley County. This effort to provide easy access to the vaccine for all residents is made possible by a generous donation from the Butler Family Foundation, a supporting organization of the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation.
"We want to make sure that everyone who wants a vaccine has a chance to participate," said Riley County Health Department Administrator Julie Gibbs. "We are so grateful for the generous donation from the Butler Family Foundation, as well as the help from local media to get the word out about the vaccine. Staff is answering phones non-stop and we're all working extremely hard to get vaccine doses into arms as quickly as possible. I'm proud of the work we've done."
