Drive-thru COVID-19 vaccinations coming to an end in Lawrence



LAWRENCE, Kan. — Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health said it planned to phase out drive-thru hours at its vaccination center at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

The health department said demand has slowed dramatically as more people become fully vaccinated.

You have one more week to take advantage of the option, if you need a vaccine.

Hours for the clinic are:

  • May 24-26
    • 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • May 28
    • 9 a.m. to Noon

Beginning June 1, 2021, vaccinations will move from the drive-thru site to the health department’s Community Health Facility. Appointments will be needed for a vaccination, and can be made online through the health department.

There are other locations in Lawrence where you will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine, including primary care clinics. The health department also plans to soon offer vaccines though a mobile van.

The health department has offered drive-thru clinics since late January and administered 57,000 doses of vaccines.
