LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) — Over the next two weeks, the University of Kentucky plans to further expand its services across the Commonwealth to offer free COVID-19 vaccinations and testing to more than 20 partner locations, including nine college campuses.

With 11 current partner locations, the expansion will allow UK to make people safer and communities healthier.

“This university serves the entire Commonwealth,” said Joe Monroe, chief of the UK Police Department. “On average, we administer 4,000 vaccines per day at our Kroger Field COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, but we hope to more than double that number with these additional locations.”

Free COVID-19 testing is also offered at these vaccine locations, he said, to put people at ease if they experience side effects after receiving their shot.

“We’re especially grateful for our partnerships with the state and Wild Health, who have been instrumental in our efforts to vaccinate and test as many people as possible,” said Monroe.

New COVID-19 vaccine and testing locations are below. Dates and times are added regularly, so continue checking those links to find a time that works with an individual schedule.

Additionally, all members of the community can utilize these locations, including those on college campuses, to receive a COVID-19 vaccine or test.
