In order to reduce the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), all NKY Health facilities in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties will be closed to the public until further notice. NKY Health services will be limited to those that can be provided virtually or over the phone. If you have any questions about NKY Health services at this time, please contact the main office at 859-341-4264 or your local county health center. Thank you for your understanding as we all do our part to limit community transmission of this disease.
The Health Department directly provides immunizations to eligible clients through its county health centers, and also works throughout the community to promote the importance of vaccines.

Immunizations are available by appointment at the Health Department’s county health centers, with many available at low or no cost, depending on the patient’s age and insurance coverage.
The Health Department is an active member of the Let’s Immunize Northern Kentucky coalition, also known as LINK. It is comprised of more than 20 organizations dedicated to the prevention of vaccine-preventable diseases and provides up-to-date and reliable information about vaccines.
If you received a vaccination at any of the county health centers, the Health Department should have a copy of the immunization record available. If you are searching for an immunization record and believe you received the vaccination through the Health Department, contact the county health center, where you received the vaccine.
If you received a vaccination outside of the Health Department, here are some tips for tracking down immunization records.
If you are trying to transfer immunization records onto a Kentucky immunization certificate for school or child care, you can do so by bringing the immunization record to any county health center, and requesting the certificate. This usually takes 24 to 48 hours.
Kentucky’s Immunization Certificate form, and the form to request a religious or medical exemption from immunization requirements, can be found on the Kentucky Department for Public Health’s website.
