Lexington Health Department updates COVID vaccine info

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department is moving its targeted COVID vaccination program into Phase 1B for Lexington residents 70 and older with mobility/transportation/technology issues preventing them from getting vaccinated at other locations.

The department continues to follow the federal/state guidelines on COVID-19 vaccination distribution. The clinics are currently limited to Phase 1A healthcare workers who live in or work in Lexington, and Phase 1B Lexington residents who are:

  • Age 70 and older, AND have issues with mobility/transportation/technology preventing them from getting vaccinated at other locations.

People who are not in one of those categories can receive notifications about future clinics by providing information at: www.lfchd.org/covid19-vaccine. This does NOT register a person for future clinics, but rather it is a way to be notified about future vaccination clinics as they become available.

Those with questions can call 859-899-2222 or email covid19vaccine@lfchd.org.

People who received their first dose from the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department will be contacted about scheduling a second dose.

The department receives a limited number of doses of the vaccine each week. Clinic planning is revisited each week to accommodate the number of doses it receives.

The vaccine is NOT available at the health department.

The vaccine will not be administered to those who have already received a COVID-19 vaccine, those who have been vaccinated with any other vaccine within the 14 days prior to vaccination, and those who are not feeling well or have not yet recovered from a current COVID-19 infection.
