COVID19 Update

Please bookmark this page to keep up to date on patient care, family safety, tips and support issues related to Covid-19.

Vaccine Clinic Update

Although Kansas City Hospice is an approved vaccine provider for the state of  Missouri, our ability to provide the vaccination is dependent upon state allocations of the Federally-provided vaccines.

The state of Missouri is executing an updated strategy, which has prioritized provision of the vaccine to high-throughput healthcare providers (hospitals) and other Mass Vaccination Sites.  These efforts are designed to vaccinate as many Missourians as fast as possible utilizing the allocated supply from the federal government.  They also are targeting more rural areas to provide further coverage across the state.

The state of Missouri has communicated that they are currently unable to allocate doses to us for an initial dose vaccination clinic. The federal and state response continues to evolve and future allocations to smaller vaccination sites like Kansas City Hospice are uncertain.

No initial dose vaccination clinics are scheduled at this time.

We urge you to not wait to sign up for a vaccination from another site in your state. The following links provide other locations for vaccinations:

  • Missouri:  
  • Kansas:

If you contacted us before February 1, you will remain on our waiting list and we will keep you posted if future vaccination clinics with us become available. We will also post updates on this page.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.
