Sedgwick County will lease space at the Wichita Mall on Harry Street for a mass H1N1 vaccination site.
Health director Claudia Blackburn said the health department doesn’t have room to accommodate a mass-scale vaccination. Commissioners approved leasing 7,211 square feet for at least four months. The cost will be $4,800 a month, including utilities but not janitorial services, which would cost an additional $360 a month.
The money for the vaccination site will come from a grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
