Moderna Vaccine Available in Labette County


As Kansas shifts into phase three and four of the COVID vaccine distribution plan, the Labette County Health Department chose not to receive their most recent shipment of the Moderna Vaccine. Director Lisa Hoppock says more people are wanting the Johnson & Johnson version of the vaccine instead of Moderna.


Hoppock says they have done three studies on the effectiveness of the Johnson & Johnson version, the first had around 65%, the second 78% and the third 85%. The Johnson & Johnson version is a single shot of the vaccine compared to the two doses of Moderna and Pfizer.
