Welcome to Our Healthy KC Eastside!

Our Healthy KC Eastside, or OHKCE, is striving to reduce the burden of COVID-19 and chronic diseases in Kansas City, Missouri’s Eastside.

How? By increasing access to COVID-19 vaccinations and health screenings where people live, work, play, and worship. UMKC has joined forces with neighborhood associations, businesses, youth organizations, and faith organizations to offer these free health services, increase the number of people vaccinated against COVID-19, and improve community health.

So, check out this site. You’ll find opportunities to get vaccinated and to receive free health services near you. You’ll also find opportunities to get involved with community health research. Do it for all of us! Protect the health of the Eastside.
