It’s a way to get on the waiting list
latte County Health Department (PCHD) has used the 225 doses allotted to the department to vaccinate individuals in Phase 1A (Residents and Employees of Long-term Care Facilities; Patient-facing Healthcare Workers; EMS).
Vaccine availability has been expanded to individuals in Phase 1B, Tier 1, but PCHD currently has no vaccine in its possession. However, that can change with little advance notice.
To help the health department prepare, it is asking Platte County, non-Kansas City residents interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to complete a brief survey which be found at us.openforms.com/Form/8c3d6585-ebb9-45a3-8d40-0046c31a9a80

On Thursday, Jan. 21, local health department officials told The Landmark the death toll of Platte County residents from COVID-19 has topped 100. There have been 65 deaths of county residents who resided within the city limits of Kansas City, and 36 deaths of Platte Countians who resided outside the KC city limits.
Based on availability, and guidance from the Missouri Department of Health and Human Services (MO DHSS) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Platte County Health Department will assist in the coordination of COVID-19 vaccine administration based on a changing priority system. Individuals will be identified to receive the vaccine based on occupation and risk status (age, medical conditions, etc.).
Once the vaccine is made available for your phase and tier, the Platte County Health Department will use your information from the survey to contact you with further instructions on how to schedule an appointment to receive your vaccination. However, completing this survey does not guarantee a vaccination appointment or save your place in line. You may be contacted for additional information as prioritization tiers may change.
Announcements about vaccine availability will be made in this area of the website, through the media (TV, newspaper, radio and social media). Updates will include dates, times and locations.
