Vaccinations for patients
New update available:
We are excited to begin vaccinating some of our patients. Currently, we are only able to vaccinate patients 16 and older with one of the following active diagnoses.
When can my child get the vaccine?
If your child falls into one of the categories, Children's Mercy will reach out to you to discuss and schedule vaccination at the Adele Hall campus as we have vaccine available. You do not need to call us or sign up, your care team will contact you. We will continue to keep you posted as other patients become eligible for the vaccine based on the guidelines of the state plans.
