Welcome to UK HealthCare Retail Pharmacies
We offer six full-service retail pharmacy locations - on campus and off - plus a specialty pharmacy for patients taking high-cost or high-risk medications.
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). For locations and hours, see below.
- The only 24/7 pharmacy inside New Circle Road in Lexington at our Chandler Hospital location. WE NEVER CLOSE!
- Refills by mail at no added cost.
- Curbside pickup at our Kentucky Clinic and Turfland locations.
- Easy refill requests using the free RefillPro app, available for iPhone or Android.
- Discounts on many medications.
- Over-the-counter items such as cough/cold and allergy relief, smoking cessation products and pain relief medications.
- Half-off most copays for UK HealthPlans members (HMO/PPO) who see a UK provider.
We are offering COVID-19 vaccinations and flu shots at most of our pharmacy locations at the UK Gatton Student Center, in the Blue Box Theater. Pediatric vaccinations for ages 5-17 are being given only at our Fountain Court location, 245 Fountain Court, off Man O'War in Lexington.
For more information on receiving COVID-19 vaccination, including boosters, visit ukvaccine.org. Anyone age 5 and over is eligible to receive the vaccine. There is no charge for vaccination and no insurance is necessary.
Flu shots may be added to a COVID-19 vaccination appointment on request -- just ask when you check in. The CDC has said it is safe and effective to receive both shots at the same time. (Note that COVID-19 shots cannot be added to flu shot appointments.)
Make a flu shot appointment.

Meds-to-Beds is a convenient concierge bedside service that delivers discharge prescriptions to the patient’s room when they are ready to leave the hospital. There is no additional cost to the patient.
Please note, these optional services are offered as a convenience only. You have the right to select any pharmacy you wish to provide medications prescribed to you by your provider.
- Medication therapy management.
- Counseling on your medications (including proper usage, storage and full review of all the medications you are taking).
- Tobacco-cessation support.
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.
