Covid-19 Vaccine

With the continued rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine across the country, state, and county, Kent City Health Department will provide education, updates, and resources pertaining to the local distribution of the vaccine. At this time, the Kent City Health Department does not have COVID-19 vaccines on hand and is not accepting sign-ups to receive the vaccine. The health department is working toward acquiring the resources to provide vaccines in the near future. Additional press releases will be provided as the situation develops. Vaccine supply is still limited across the country. 

Even if you are vaccinated, you will still need to follow public health guidance for reducing the spread of COVID-19 such as wearing a mask, social distancing, and washing your hands frequently. Until more people are vaccinated, we must continue to practice these safe public health measures.
