As you may know, SKIL and other advocacy groups fought to get Direct Support Workers (DSWs) included on the Kansas state government’s list of frontline healthcare workers in Phase 1A of the Coronavirus vaccine rollout, so these workers would qualify to receive vaccines more quickly. By working together, we have thankfully have accomplished this--a great victory to celebrate!

If you are a DSW and want to get your COVID-19 shots, you are now allowed to do so. You must locate where the vaccines are being given in your community and contact the providers who administer them to see when you can get your shots.

Let me be clear when I say that we at SKIL respect and honor your choices on whether and/or when to take the vaccine or not. That said, you must educate yourself to be best able to make that decision. Please check out the links below for more information on the Coronavirus vaccine process:

Thank you for being responsible and educating yourselves on this most important decision. We appreciate you for your dedicated work to serve our customers,

Love, Shari
