Vaccination Center – State of Kentucky Mandates:
On February 1, 2021, the COVID-19 vaccination priority will be Phase 1B, persons age 70 years or older.  All Vaccination Sites are asked to prioritize this population until further notice.  Other persons from Phase 1A and 1B remain eligible for vaccination.  As vaccine quantities and available appointment times allow, persons in Phase 1C may also be scheduled to ensure each vaccination site administers 90% or more of all vaccine doses received within 7 days of arrival.
