COVID-19 Vaccine

Request a vaccination

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available.

By completing the vaccine request form, you will be added to the database of those requesting to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the University of Kentucky’s Kroger Field location. The database will allow us to send invitations for vaccine appointments based on the recommended phased distribution from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, with priority given to healthcare workers, essential workers and older people. Once you receive the invitation, please respond as quickly as possible.

  • You will get an access code that allows you to schedule your appointment. This code is FOR YOUR USE ONLY. Inappropriately sharing this code could potentially delay vaccination of someone who is vulnerable and put them at risk.

Please note the following:

  • Each day, UK HealthCare will assess the individual requests based on their priority as outlined above. Once your request is prioritized, you will receive your invitation and will be able to select a date and time to receive your vaccine.
  • Invitations will be issued on a rolling basis and are dependent on how many vaccines are allocated to UK HealthCare on a weekly basis and the number of qualified applicants in the queue.
  • Once you are moved to the top of the queue, you will be invited to select a date and time for vaccination when the phased vaccine rollout gets to your risk group. Vaccines will be given in a central location: Kroger Field at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.
  • Both vaccines require two doses – an initial shot that will be followed by a booster shot weeks later. UK HealthCare is prepared to provide individuals with both doses, as allocations become available. Read more about the vaccines.
  • PLEASE BE PATIENT. Although we plan to vaccinate thousands of people each day, six days a week, it will still take several months to vaccinate everyone who wishes to be vaccinated.
  • Vaccinations will be administered at Kroger Field. You may park in the blue lot and follow the directional signage to the vaccine clinic. Our clinic is on one level and is accessible.
  • UK HealthCare will not charge for COVID vaccination.
  • Those who cannot access our online tools, or need assistance filling out this form, may call 859-218-0111 for assistance.
  • If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccines, please visit our FAQs.
  • If you have a health condition and have questions about whether vaccination is recommended for you, please talk to your health care provider.

REQUEST A VACCINATION

After you request a vaccination:

  • The invitation will be sent to the email address you provide on this form.
  • Look for an email from UK HEALTHCARE VACCINATIONS.
  • Once you receive the invitation, please respond as quickly as possible. You will get an access code that allows you to schedule your appointment. This code is FOR YOUR USE ONLY. Inappropriately sharing this code could potentially delay vaccination of someone who is vulnerable and put them at risk.
  • Anyone using a registration code who has obtained it improperly will have their appointment canceled or will be turned away at the vaccination clinic.
  • Your information will be reported to the state for the Kentucky Immunization Registry but will not be used for any other purposes.
  • Kentucky's Phased Plan

    To be as fair as possible, UK HealthCare is following Kentucky’s phased plan.

    Kentucky and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have directed that vaccinations be offered in the following phases:

    • 1A: Long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities, healthcare personnel.*
    • 1B: First responders, anyone age 70 or older, K-12 school personnel.*
    • 1C: Anyone age 60 or older, anyone age 16 or older with CDC highest risk C19 conditions, all essential workers.
    • 2: Anyone age 40 or older.
    • 3: Anyone age 16 or older.
    • 4: Children under the age of 16 if the vaccine is approved for this age group (est. 18 percent of Ky. population).
