From Reno County Health Dept:
Phase 2 Vaccinations began on 1/21/20 with the following guidance and recommendations of the Reno County Medical Collaborative:
2a: Persons Aged 65+ (12,331 individuals)
2b: Persons in Group Quarters/Congregate Living (2,526 individuals)
2c: High Contact Critical Workers (7,117 individuals)
We have received 3100 doses total in Reno County for this phase that includes over 21,000 people. Because of the limited supply, the John Hopkins risk score, along with the stringent advice of clinicians, are being utilized to identify those at highest risk. Phase 2 individuals have been offered a pre-registration link to allow for all people over the age of 65 to sign up for the vaccine. The list is then utilized to take the highest risk individuals to receive the vaccine by appointment only, in order to social distance and avoid long wait times. The goal is to efficiently administer all doses received each week. Follow the Reno County website for weekly updates that will include vaccine supply numbers and scheduling information. www.renogov.org/741/COVID-19.
Please encourage your teachers, parents, students and their grandparents that live in Reno County to be tested at the Free Community Testing Events. Log on to https://www.gogettested.com/ for more information and directions as to how to sign up. Health Order 21-01 that was put into place, to extend Amended Health Order 20-05 due to our high case count, high PTR and Hutchinson Regional Medical Center Covid-19 increased cases, to keep mass gatherings at “10”, will expire on 2/24/21. Reno County is still under the Governor’s Mask Mandate. Again mitigating measures need to be continued by social distancing by more than 6 ft., wash hands frequently, wear a mask and stay home when you are sick.
The Reno County Health Department, along with local physicians and administrators from the Hutchinson Clinic and Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System, held a town hall on Friday, January 15th, regarding current information on vaccines available.
