The presentation at this meeting will provide an overview of current status on COVID vaccination distribution and administration activity in Missouri and Kansas. Information during the presentation will include actions that can be taken by child care providers that will help them to make decisions and outline steps to take in order to receive the COVID vaccine.
With COVID cases continuing to rise, we held a community meeting to share information, hear your questions and provide some guidance on what we can all do to help keep child care programs open. The webinar included representation from various jurisdictions to help address specific concerns.
Please complete the following survey to help our community partners better understand your needs and connect you to local resources that can support you.

Your local health department is serving as the information provider for all businesses, including child care centers, family child care, group homes and registered providers. Your jurisdiction is based on the lowest level of agency available given the physical address of your business. For example, if you live in Kansas City, MO, you would contact Kansas City, MO Health Department.
If you are unable to obtain health and safety recommendations from your health department, you can refer to our list of resources for best practices.
