We offer eight full-service retail pharmacy locations - on campus and off - plus a specialty pharmacy for patients taking whose medications require extra care.
One-stop testing and treatment for flu
No need to wait for the doctor then wait again at the pharmacy! We have one-stop appointments available. Get a test and if it's positive, leave with the medication you need. Most appointments take less than 30 minutes. Available at several of our locations. We also have one-stop testing and treatment for strep, COVID and UTIs. Make an appointment. (After clicking, choose Pharmacy.)
Our pharmacies are open to everyone and are open-access, which means we accept prescriptions from any medical provider, not just those at UK. We also accept most insurance plans.
Reach our pharmacies by calling toll-free 833-333-UKRx (8579).
UK Retail Pharmacies are now offering updated COVID-19 boosters to anyone age 5 and up who has completed their original COVID-19 vaccination series at least two months ago. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available. Anyone age 6 months and older who has not yet completed the original COVID vaccination series may request to receive the monovalent vaccine now.
Flu vaccinations are also available at our pharmacies and may be received at the same time as COVID shots. If you would like a flu vaccination in addition to your COVID shot, please just let the pharmacist know when you arrive for your appointment.
Vaccinations for Hepatitis A&B, shingles, pneumococcal pneumonia and more are also available at our pharmacies. Learn more about our vaccination program and available vaccines by following the link below.
UK Retail Pharmacies offer curbside prescription pickup at our Kentucky Clinic and Turfland locations during designated hours.
To arrange to pick up your prescription using our socially distant process, call the location of your choice and request curbside delivery. You will be given a time window in which to do your pickup.
At your assigned time, park in the designated waiting area and call the number on the signs to let us know you have arrived.
If you have previously filled your prescription at another UK Retail Pharmacy location, it’s no problem. Just call us and tell us where you’d like to pick up. We can also help you move your prescriptions from any outside pharmacy.
UK Chandler Retail Pharmacy recently became the only 24-hour pharmacy inside New Circle Road in Lexington and one of only two all-night pharmacies in all of Lexington, as other area pharmacies have shortened their hours.
Chandler Pharmacy, located on the first floor UK Chandler Hospital Pavilion A behind the gift shop, moved to overnight service in January 2019 in an effort to provide better service for patients in our emergency department and others with late-night medication needs. The pharmacy, which is open to the public, never closes.
Parking at UK Chandler Pharmacy is easy. A designated short-term parking spot on the front loop of the hospital offers a convenient way to park and run into the pharmacy for prescription pickup. Thirty minutes of free parking is also available in the UK HealthCare Garage at 110 Transcript Ave., directly across S. Limestone from the hospital. The concourse bridge at Level C of the garage offers safe passage across S. Limestone and ends just steps from the pharmacy.
Security is onsite at all times for your peace of mind.
