Northern Kentucky Pharmacies to Vaccinate Against COVID-19; See list of locations, register

Bulldog Report

FLORENCE, KY. — Designated pharmacies in Northern Kentucky will begin receiving small quantities of vaccine later this week to help vaccinate individuals against COVID-19. These pharmacies are part of the Federal Pharmacy Partners program. They will receive vaccine directly from the federal government, not from the vaccines allocated to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Walgreens pharmacies in thirteen locations in Northern Kentucky have been designated to receive vaccine. A number of independent pharmacies will also be designated later this week.

It is anticipated that each location will receive 100 doses per week starting later this week. Pharmacies have been instructed to vaccinate the Phase 1B population with a priority on individuals age 70 and over.

Walgreens locations and a link to register for an appointment at these sites can be found at https://nkyhealth.org/individual-or-family/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19-home/covid-19-vaccination/. Independent pharmacies will be added once registration information is available.

“We are glad to have additional partners joining in the efforts to vaccinate people here in Northern Kentucky,” stated Lynne Saddler, MD, MPH, District Director of Health of the Northern Kentucky Health Department, “We are seeing tremendous demand for vaccinations. Every vaccination provider and every dose of vaccine helps get shots in arms.”
