Primary  Doses

The CDC recommends COVID-19 primary series vaccines for everyone ages 6 months and older.

Details here.

Use this vaccine scheduler to stay up to date on the latest COVID-19 vaccination guidelines.

Booster/Additional Doses

The CDC recommends a COVID-19 booster for everyone ages 5 years and older. Details here.

NEW |The CDC no longer approves monovalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for boosters in people ages 12 and older. This change is in response to the Food and Drug Administration’s recent approval for the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech bivalent boosters, which are expected to provide increased protection against the currently circulating omicron variant.

COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling

How to Schedule a Vaccine

At this time:
-Children 6 months to 11 years of age: As applicable, select Olathe Health clinics are providing primary and booster doses.
-All individuals 12 years and older:
-Primary series: Make arrangements with an outside provider (vaccine.gov) for primary dose series.
-Booster: Select Olathe Health clinics are providing bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech boosters.

To Schedule: Patients can now contact their clinic or the Doctor Today line (913.782.2224) to schedule an appointment.

Online:

  • If you are a patient who has been seen at Olathe Health, the best way to schedule a vaccine appointment is online using the Patient Portal. (If you are a patient and do not have a portal account, contact your primary care clinic to get signed up.) 
  • Please note, there are weekend appointments available, but they do not automatically show up in direct book. You will need to change your filters in order to see this option. To change your filters, first select “View All Appointments” on one of the clinic locations listed. Then, click “Advanced Filters” at the top. Check the weekends you would like selected, then click “Apply.”

By Phone:

  • If you are a patient with an Olathe Health primary care doctor and don’t wish to schedule online, please call your primary care clinic to schedule your vaccine.
  • If you are NOT a patient, you can still schedule an appointment for the vaccine. Please call any Olathe Health primary care clinic. View a full list of clinics here.

Please note: Several of the COVID-19 vaccine brands are a series of two injections that must be given within a specific time frame. Your appointment for the second injection will be made during the check-in process for your first injection. You must receive both injections for the vaccine to be most effective. The vaccine is free, however, there is a fee to administer the injection that will be billed to your insurance.

Attestation forms will need to be completed prior to receiving a “third” or “booster” dose. The form can be accessed here.

Where to direct Patient Portal questions:

  • If you are a patient and are trying to set up a new patient portal account, please call your Olathe Health primary care clinic to get signed up. If you do not have a primary care clinic, please call your Olathe Health Physicians specialty clinic to get signed up.
  • If you are a patient and need help with login and password resets, or general navigation support, please call 1-877-621-8014, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
