About COVID-19 Vaccines

Two COVID-19 vaccines have received emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration – the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and the Moderna vaccine.

Recent studies from Pfizer and Moderna have shown their vaccines to be 95% and 94.5% effective against COVID-19, respectively.

Both vaccines require two doses – an initial shot followed by a booster shot weeks later. UK HealthCare is prepared to provide individuals with both doses, as allocations of each become available, in accordance with Kentucky’s phased distribution plan.
