FLORENCE, KY. — The Northern Kentucky Health Department, in partnership with St. Elizabeth Healthcare and HealthPoint Family Care, are working to meet the need for vaccinating Northern Kentuckians who qualify for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Currently, long term care facilities, assisted living facilities, health care personnel, and first responders who are in Phase 1A are currently being vaccinated in Northern Kentucky and will continue. Additionally, we are expanding into Phase 1B which includes K-12 School personnel and individuals age 70 and older.
Vaccines are available by appointment only. Walk-Ins will not be permitted as vaccine doses are limited to the individuals who have registered. At the time of appointment, individuals age 70 and older will be required to provide a Kentucky ID for verification of residence. If an appointment is scheduled and the person does not meet the verifications, they will not receive the vaccine. Those who arrive without a scheduled appointment, will not be able to be vaccinated
Individuals who are 70 and older and live in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties as well as those in Phase 1A can find information about scheduling an appointment with NKY Health, St. Elizabeth Healthcare or HealthPoint Family Care at this link: https://nkyhealth.org/individual-or-family/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19-home/covid-19-vaccination/. If you cannot sign up online, you may register via phone starting Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at (859) 363-2120 to schedule an appointment.
As part of Phase 1B, vaccination of K-12 School personnel for public and private schools in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton County school districts will begin over the next few weeks. St. E is working directly with school administrators to schedule vaccine appointments at designated clinic locations for all personnel who have requested a vaccine.
