Data from the four distributors showed that 21,752 first doses and 10,829 second doses of COVID-19 vaccine had been administered in Douglas County

Lawrence, KS – The four organizations have also administered 10,829 of the 15,837 second doses they have received.

The percentage of second doses that have been administered is smaller because agencies must wait the appropriate time to administer the second dose.

The second Pfizer vaccine dose is meant to be administered 21 days after the first dose, and the second Moderna vaccine dose is meant to be administered 28 days after the first dose.

With both first and second doses, those four Douglas County organizations had administered 32,581 total doses as of Thursday. That’s an increase of 5,602 doses since data was last reported on Feb. 25.

Douglas County is currently vaccinating people in Phase 2, which includes residents 65 and older, essential workers in local government, workers in the K-12 education sector, workers in the food service industry, people who live or work in congregate care settings, workers critical to the functioning of the community, and anyone who was eligible to be vaccinated in Phase 1 but has not yet received a shot.
