Boosters are also available for eligible people. You can learn more here: COVID-19 Booster Doses.

The vaccine will not be given to someone who is already fully vaccinated. We will complete a vaccination series for someone whose first dose was given elsewhere. Vaccines will not be given to those who are not feeling well or have not yet recovered from a current COVID-19 infection.

COVID-19 vaccination is free, but your insurance will be billed for an administration fee. There will be no cost directly to you. You do not need insurance to get the free vaccine.

Thank you for your interest in getting vaccinated. If you need assistance, please call our COVID-19 call center at 859-899-2222.

Flu Shot Information

An annual flu shot is the best way to fight the flu each fall and winter. The flu shot remains important this year as we remain in the COVID-19 pandemic. It can help reduce the overall impact on respiratory illnesses on the population, which will lessen the burden on our healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to helping prevent you from getting sick with flu, a flu shot can reduce the severity of your illness if you do get flu and reduce your risk of a flu-associated hospitalization.

The seasonal flu shot is recommended for all people ages 6 months and older and is especially important for people at the highest risk of serious complications from the flu: infants and young children, pregnant women, anyone with underlying medical conditions and adults 50 and older.
