Scheduling an Appointment

Northern Kentucky is currently vaccinating people in Phases 1a, 1b and 1c with a priority on individuals 60 and older and those who are 16 and older with high-risk medical conditions that have been identified by the CDC to be at increased risk of severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19.  If you are eligible for a vaccine, you must schedule an appointment. Please do not show up at a site without an appointment, as you will not be vaccinated.   

You must be a resident of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and able to demonstrate residency consistent with the requirements of KRS 186.010(12) or an individual providing either childcare or healthcare services involving direct care to patients in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  

  • Residence Verification – “Resident” means any person who has established Kentucky as his or her state of domicile. Proof of residency shall include but not be limited to a deed or property tax bill, utility agreement or utility bill, or rental housing agreement. The possession by an operator of a vehicle of a valid Kentucky operator’s license shall be prima-facie evidence that the operator is a resident of Kentucky.  A passport or military ID with photo will also suffice.  
  • Healthcare Worker Verification – Examples include a badge, a letter from your employer, a pay stub, or other official document.
  • The state is leaving it up to each vaccination provider to determine what they will require for verification of employment as an essential worker.   It can be difficult to tell from each vaccination provider’s website what will be required, however, NKY Health is recommending that people bring with them a form of identification that verifies your employer, such as an employee badge, a letter from your employer, a pay stub, or other official document.

Please do not schedule a vaccine at multiple vaccine sites, as you will prevent another eligible person from receiving the vaccine.  Please make sure you have read and understand all of the following information before scheduling an appointment:

  • Vaccines are available by appointment only.  Walk-ins will not be permitted as vaccine doses are limited to the individuals who have registered. Those who arrive without a scheduled appointment, will not be vaccinated.
  • If an appointment is scheduled and you do not meet the verifications, you will not receive the vaccine.
  • When considering where you will receive your vaccine, remember that your 1st and 2nd dose of the vaccine must be provided by the same organization. 
  • You must wear a mask at your appointment and remain socially distanced from others.
  • If you are positive for COVID-19, you may be vaccinated after you are considered recovered and out of isolation/quarantine. We encourage you to talk to your healthcare provider about when you should receive the vaccine.
  • After you receive a vaccination, you must continue to wear appropriate PPE in professional settings and social distancing and masking in personal situations. 
  • You will not be charged for the vaccine. Some partners will bill insurance for an administrative fee.
  • There is not enough vaccine available to distribute to every interested individual in Phases 1A and 1B right now. If you are not able to schedule because appointment slots are no longer available, please continue to check all links, appointment days and times will be opened up as soon as vaccine allotments are available. 
  • The COVID-19 Vaccine cannot be given to anyone who has received a vaccine for another illness within a 14 day time period.
