LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — Baptist Health has announced it is now scheduling COVID-19 vaccinations for people in phases 1A and 1B, while the University of Kentucky has begun to invite people to sign up to be vaccinated at Kroger Field.

Phase 1A is meant for healthcare personnel employed in the state of Kentucky. Phase 1B focuses on people ages 70 and up.

UK is also giving priority to health care workers and older Kentuckians. The state's phased vaccine plan can be found here. A request for vaccination can be submitted here.
