dgcoks.org/vaccineinterestform. Completing the form does not schedule an appointment, but will allow providers to notify individuals when a vaccine becomes available with instructions on how to schedule an appointment.
We schedule our mass vaccination clinics very carefully to use all of the allocated doses. In the event vaccine is left over, we will reach out to those who qualify in phase 2 and have filled out the vaccine interest form. None of the vaccine is wasted at the end of the day. There have been instances where we vaccinate clinic volunteers who have worked that day to avoid wasting doses when those from our Phase 2 standby list are not available.
You will be contacted to schedule your second dose in the same way you were contacted to schedule your first dose. As of April 9, we have also published codes for all 1st dose and 2nd dose appointments, which will be from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. You can find the codes at LDCHealth.org/COVIDVaccine and DouglasCountyks.org/Coronavirus to schedule your appointment.
For people who didn’t get a vaccine card, they can contact LDCPH, email@example.com or 785-843-0721, and we can work with them to get them a card.

It typically takes 5-7 days to receive results from state lab.
The fee for a Tuberculosis (TB) skin test is $20. TB skin tests are administered at the Health Department every day of the week except Thursdays. Blood testing for TB screening also is available at a cost of $71. The blood test is primarily recommended for anyone born in a foreign country or who has received BCG vaccination.
In 2019, there is currently a shortage of TB skin testing material. Clients who need TB testing will be screened for health and job risks to determine which test is recommended during the shortage. This may include a screening form only until the shortage is resolved.
