WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - For the last few days, Kansas Health Department & Environment (KDHE) has been putting on vaccination and testing events at service stations on the turnpike. It’s in collaboration with Blue Cross Blue Shield.

KDHE officials say they’ve seen a pretty good response from the clinics. The site locations are displayed on turnpike message boards. KDHE officials say over the last couple of days, about 30 people have stopped by each day.

“A good story from yesterday is we actually had an individual that we did a 15-minute rapid test on and that person came back positive and we could actually tell them so they didn’t go into the station that was right here and possibly expose other people,” said KDHE Emergency Management Director Michael McNulty.
