Flora Templeton Stuart Accident Injury Lawyers created this page to keep those interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine informed.
This is a combined, up-to-date list of local health care institutions, pharmacies, and public health organizations that offer the vaccine, along with information so you can sign up to get your vaccine. This information is for residents in South Central Kentucky.
At present, the CDC is recommending that people with moderate to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of the vaccine at least 28 days after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Booster shots are now available if you received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine more than 6 months ago and are:
- Age 65+
- Resident or staff in long-term care settings
- Age 18+ and have certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes and obesity
- Age 18+ and work in high-risk settings including healthcare, education and front-line workers
The vaccine that you will receive varies based on the pharmacy or location that you register with. If you have a vaccine preference, be sure to check the pharmacy’s website before signing up.
