Request a vaccination
By completing the vaccine request form, you will be added to the database of those requesting to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at locations operated by UK HealthCare Pharmacy Services. After completing the form, you will receive an email inviting you to make an appointment at the location of your choice. 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. Do not share your access code with others. Instead, we encourage you to share ukvaccine.org with anyone interested in receiving vaccination. At this time, there is plenty of vaccine available for anyone who registers for an appointment.
Please note the following:
- The FDA has authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine to prevent COVID-19 in people 12 and older under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). However, anyone younger than 18 who receives a vaccination appointment must come to the appointment with a parent or legal guardian.
- 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.
- 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.
- Both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 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.
