LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The City of Lexington is moving into Phase 1B to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.

The city's clinics are currently limited to Phase 1A healthcare workers who live in or work in Lexington, and Phase 1B Lexington residents who are:

  • Age 70 and older, AND have issues with mobility/transportation/technology preventing them from getting vaccinated at other locations

If you are part of those categories, you can receive notifications about future clinics by providing information here. This does not register you, but it is a way to be notified about future vaccination clinics as they become available. If you have questions, please call the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department at (859) 899-2222 or email

If you received your first dose from the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, we will contact you about scheduling your second dose. The city is following federal/state guidelines on COVID-19 vaccination distribution.

The vaccine will not be administered to those who have already received a COVID-19 vaccine, those who have been vaccinated with any other vaccine within the 14 days prior to vaccination, and those who are not feeling well or have not yet recovered from a current COVID-19 infection.
