The Community Health Foundation is dedicated to improving the health of Kay County. For the past year and a half, the biggest challenge to our community's health has been the COVID-19 virus. As of the beginning of October 2021, only about 36% of the eligible people in our county are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (up from 30% at the time of the filming of this video). With the Delta variant now spreading rapidly, the best way to protect you and your family is to get a COVID-19 vaccine. 86.6% of all hospitalizations for COVID-19 in the past 30 days in Oklahoma have been in unvaccinated people.

Please watch these videos featuring several of our local doctors, nurses, and community members to learn more about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines. There is one video with general information about the vaccine and then two videos with health professionals and community members addressing the most frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccines. 

COVID-19 vaccines are available at the Kay County Health Department, with no appointment necessary, Monday through Friday from 8 to 11 am and 1 pm to 4 pm.

General Information about the COVID-19 Vaccines
When the COVID-19 pandemic found it's way to Kay County, the Community Health Foundation was quick to respond. We first made a donation to the United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund. We then provided snack baskets to every unit at Alliance Health Ponca City, from administration to the ICU. Pictured below is our director, Kelli Northcutt (far left), delivering the baskets.

As school was starting in Fall 2020, it was clear that schools needed the community's help to make sure students were safe at school. The Community Health Foundation jumped into action again and purchased hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, and almost 2400 facemasks for area students. 
Peckham Schools

Angela Shelton, Dean of Students at Kildare Elementary, accepted a donation of four cases of hand sanitizer and face masks for their students. 
Shelley Arrott, Superintendent of Ponca City Public Schools, accepted a donation of 2300 face masks for Pre-K through 7th grade students from Foundation Director, Kelli Northcutt.  

In an ongoing effort to support our community during the COVID pandemic, Kelli Northcutt, Executive Director of the Community Health Foundation, has been volunteering her time at the Kay County vaccine pod one or two days each week.
