Kansas Governor Laura Kelly made a visit to Wichita Monday morning to encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine and talk about the need for Medicaid expansion.

The governor visited Wesley Medical Center and the Wesley Children’s Hospital and talked with members of the Wichita Black Nurses Association, which has been active in getting COVID-19 vaccines into neighborhoods that have not had ready access to it.

Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple and State Senator Oletha Faust-Goudeau also attended the event.   The governor has been visiting locations around the state as part of a Back to Work, Back to School tour.   This is the second week of the tour.
