Kansas vaccination plan prioritizes health care workers


A draft plan shows that health care workers and long-term care residents will be among those who will get the coronavirus vaccine first in Kansas.

The 45-page plan was filed in the past week with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Other groups that will be prioritized for the initial rounds of vaccinations include people with underlying medical conditions, people 65 and older and essential workers.

State officials then will use advisory committees to help determine who should receive the vaccine next. The plan indicates that the state is taking input from groups representing individuals with disabilities, people of color, children and other demographics.
