Ellis County Health Department

Ellis County Health Department is happy to report that through the COVID Community Vaccine Initiative, 8000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Through a tremendous outpouring of support from the medical community, volunteers, and community partnerships the vaccine clinic is running successfully. This week will still have ample supply of vaccine available. If you have not registered, please do so at www.ellisco.net. If you are unable to access the website, you may call 785-628-9440 for assistance with registration. The Hays Public Library has also teamed up with ECHD to provide access to computers and assistance with registration. You may call them at 785-625-9014.

Vaccine registration

The vaccine registration form located at www.ellisco.net allows for self-scheduling of appointments. Currently, we are offering Moderna vaccine on Wednesday and a small amount of Johnson and Johnson on Thursday morning. Following EUA authorization, this vaccine is only available to those 18 years and older. If you are 16 years of age to 18 years of age and desire to be vaccinated, you will need to find a location that is offering the Pfizer vaccine. At this point, the best location will be private pharmacies. The Ellis County Health Department does not anticipate receiving or administering any Pfizer vaccine.

Data reporting

Due to the reliability and depth of information available on the KDHE dashboard beginning April 1, 2021 the Ellis County Health Department will no longer maintain a separate dashboard. We will place a link to the KDHE Dashboard on our website. We encourage everyone to access this information on the KDHE Dashboard.
