As the Omicron variant continues to spread across Kansas, local health departments, providers, and community groups are continuing to hold free COVID-19 vaccine and testing clinics across the state. The Omicron variant poses a dangerous risk to communities across Kansas, but the important steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 remain the same – vaccinate, mask, test, and distance as possible. Following recommendations of both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), all Kansans age 5 and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. For those 18 and older, the FDA’s emergency use authorization also covers the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
