For the first time since the COVID-19 vaccine rolled out, supply of the vaccine in parts of Kansas has surpassed demand

Lawrence, KS – According to the statement, the process of scheduling appointments is also at a tipping point with same-day scheduling becoming a reality in some spots.

The Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health Department saw this situation in action. At their vaccination events, they have their supply of vaccines incoming and outgoing.

On Wednesday, with 4,100 doses available, they ended up needing only 2,900 doses out of cold storage because the maximum amount of people did not sign up for appointments.

Since late January they have administered about 30,000 first vaccine doses at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

The University of Kansas Health System has 8,000 appointments to fill. You do not have to be a patient. You just have to live in Kansas (there are no county restrictions) or work in Johnson County, Kansas.
