The pictured numbers reflect only vaccines received and administered by the Franklin County Health Department. AdventHealth Ottawa received doses of the vaccine in December and administered it to their staff. Franklin County nursing homes, assisted living and senior living facilities have contracts with CVS and Walgreens as well as the State of Kansas to vaccinate all of their employees and residents. 

The 60 doses of vaccine that Franklin County has received have been administered to the Franklin County COVID response team, including Health Department and EMS staff.

Franklin County expects to receive up to 500 doses of the of the vaccine in the next few days that will be used to for Healthcare personnel that is not affiliated with AdventHealth Ottawa. Example: Medical Doctors, Eye Doctors, Dentists, Chiropractors, Home Health Agencies, Hospice Agencies, etc.  

Franklin County must follow the State of Kansas’ phased approach to administer the vaccine. The phases are as follows:

Phase 1B –

  • People 65 years of age and older
  • Other essential workers
  • Long-term care residents
