But you probably only need to think of one in your close circle of family and friends
Protecting the people we love has always been at the core of why we get vaccinated. Whether it’s preventing measles, smallpox and other diseases in school children or making sure we all avoid the flu, COVID-19 and pneumonia, vaccines save lives.
In Kearny County, we care about one another
Caring for you is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why Kearny County Hospital’s Family Health Center offers walk-in flu, pneumonia and COVID-19 vaccines at the Lakin clinic location Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm and on Saturdays from 9-11am. You can also schedule an appointment – just let us know your preference by filling out the form below or call 620-355-7550 to make an appointment. Please note that while our clinic does not currently offer childhood vaccines, we will help to coordinate your child’s immunizations with our local health department.
When it comes to vaccines – which vaccines to get, when and where to get them – it’s only natural to have questions and concerns. That’s why we’ve created this page as your central “hub” of trusted information about vaccines and resources to help answer your questions. If you don’t find the answers you need here, simply complete the form below to be contacted by a Family Health Center staff member to personally address your vaccine concerns, or give us a call at 620-355-7550.
No matter your unique reason for getting vaccinated, we encourage all community members to do so in an effort to live, work and play together in the healthiest way we can.
Vaccine Schedules: Getting the Right Vaccines at the Right Times
Some people get their flu shot on the same date each year. Vaccines for babies are set at key times of the baby’s development – 3 months, 6 months, etc. Back to school shots need to happen before that first bell rings. Pneumonia shots happen year round but are especially popular in the fall or winter when flu is most common. COVID-19 vaccines are critical now to stop the spread of this disease and its variants while protecting ourselves, as well as our families, friends and neighbors. Check out the timetables and FAQs below to learn more about typical schedules for common vaccines – and all other questions vaccine-related.
