COVID & Vaccine
Liberty Hospital is part of Operation Safe which is ONE high-volume vaccination site at Cerner in North Kansas City.
- In accordance with the state's plan, vaccines are allocated to individuals in Phase 1A, 1B-Tier 1 and 1B-Tier 2.
- If you are a Missouri resident in one of these phases, please complete Clay County Public Health Center's COVID-19 vaccination interest form. Individuals who completed this form and are prioritized within the current tier will receive invitations to sign up for an appointment in the coming weeks. Please check your spam/junk email folders.
- Clinics are held every other week, as the state makes vaccines available.
ALL Missouri residents may complete the state form on the Missouri COVID Vaccine Navigator website. Once completed, the state will notify you when you are eligible and opportunities are available. The state vaccine hotline is 877.435.8411.
