UPDATED OCT. 2: The updated COVID-19 shot is now available for anyone without insurance or children with Medicaid. Visit here to learn more: COVID-19 shot in Public Health Clinic.
SEPT. 15: With the approval of a new COVID-19 shot and its upcoming arrival, we want to address some of the questions we are receiving:
- We are unsure when the new shot will be available in our Public Health Clinic, but we hope to have them by the end of September.
- The health department will provide the vaccine for free to those who qualify for the Kentucky Vaccine Program – those who are uninsured and children with Medicaid. The vaccine will only be available for those groups.
- Those who qualify for the Kentucky Vaccine Program can make same-day appointments when the vaccine is available by calling 859-288-2483. We cannot make appointments until we receive the vaccine.
- We encourage others to get the COVID-19 shot at area pharmacies or medical providers. The vaccine is expected to be at some Lexington pharmacies as early as next week.
