Swope Health Central Takes Over COVID-19 Vaccinations from Temporary Clinic

The Swope Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at 4401 Blue Parkway in The Shops on Blue Parkway will close on June 25. Vaccinations still are available from Swope Health Central, in Adult medicine, Pediatrics and Ob-Gyn, at 3801 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (formerly 3801 Blue Parkway).

The clinics at Swope Health Central all offer COVID-19 vaccinations Monday through Friday during regular business hours. The Pfizer vaccine is offered to anyone age 12-17 with a parent or guardian present. To make an appointment, call 816-923-5800.

Additionally, Swope Health offers the vaccine at all Swope Health Clinic locations on scheduled days. At each location, the Pfizer vaccine is offered to anyone age 12 or older; those between the ages of 12-17 must have a parent or guardian present.

 

The 4401 location was established as a temporary clinic to allow Swope Health to handle larger volumes as the vaccines first became available. At its peak, the temporary clinic handled up to 400 vaccinations a day.

 

Now that vaccines have become more readily available through mass vaccination events and at many more locations, the need for the dedicated space is diminished.

 

Swope Health continues to encourage everyone to get the COVID-19 vaccination. If you have questions about the vaccine, please reach out to your physician or clinician.

 

You can call 816-923-5800 to schedule an appointment at any Swope Health location.
