Vaccination Info for Direct Support Workers
We have been receiving some questions regarding how Direct Support Workers (DSWs) can get a COVID-19 vaccination. The following information was provided by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS):
Community-Based Long-Term Services and Support (LTSS) workers like DSWs in Kansas are deemed health care workers in the context of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. As such, DSWs should contact their local Health Departments or Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) to request vaccinations for LTSS workers. The supply of vaccinations, at the local level, will dictate the responsiveness of the requests.
