(RILEY COUNTY, KS – March 18, 2021) Starting today, Riley County will be rolling out a new program to schedule COVID vaccines. 

In the past, those eligible to receive a vaccine were assigned a one-hour window to be vaccinated. The new software will allow individuals to choose a thirty-minute window that best fits with their schedule on a specified day. Only those who have registered with Riley County will be notified of available appointments. Notifications of appointment eligibility and instructions will be sent via Everbridge. Only those individuals who receive a notification will be able to schedule an appointment. If you can't make your appointment, your name will remain on the list, and we will contact you for future clinics. 

Notifications for second doses will make use of the same scheduling process. If you received your first dose from the Riley County Health Department and have not been notified for the second dose, please feel free to contact the health department for more information. 

Individuals without internet access can call 785-565-6560 for assistance.

Beginning next week Riley County, in accordance with KDHE, will begin vaccinating those in Phase 3 and 4. For a breakdown of phases, please refer to this link

To date, Riley County has mostly received the Moderna vaccine. It is only approved for use on individuals 18 and over.
