Kansas releases staff vaccine rates at long-term care facilities — here’s how to view JoCo data

A new online dashboard details vaccination rates of staffs at long-term care facilities in Kansas. The state dashboard comes as the Biden administration gets set to order staffers within all federally licensed nursing homes nationwide to be vaccinated.

Just one out of 38 federally licensed long-term care facilities in Johnson County have reached the state’s goal of vaccinating at least 90% of their workers, according to a new online dashboard unveiled by the state late last week.

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) and Kansas Department for Health and Environment (KDHE) worked together to create the new Kansas Long-Term Care Facility Staff Vaccination Coverage dashboard.
