COVID-19 Vaccine at Children's Mercy

Updated: September 8, 2021

Your child's vaccination record

It is important to bring your child’s vaccination (immunization) record to all their Children's Mercy visits and appointments. This includes your child's COVID-19 vaccine card if they have received it.

Children’s Mercy is continuing to follow the vaccine rollout plans developed by Missouri and Kansas

We will continue to keep this page updated as additional information becomes available. You can also check the websites of your local health department to learn more about their plan for vaccine distribution.
