Childcare workers were also recently added to the list of eligible vaccine recipients in Kentucky. Those currently eligible for appointments in Kentucky now include:

  • Healthcare workers and first responders who live or work in Kentucky
  • People who come into contact with COVID-19 infectious material (such as funeral home employees)
  • Childcare workers who live or work in Kentucky
  • Individuals age 60+ who live or work in Kentucky

“We have successfully rescheduled those patients who had postponed appointments, so we are now able to add appointments at Deaconess Henderson Hospital beginning March 4; Kentuckians who are eligible for vaccines can begin filling those appointments now,” said Spencer. “Deaconess Union County appointments will be available in late March, with more information to follow as the date approaches.”

Those who live in another state but work in Kentucky will need to bring proof of Kentucky employment to their appointment to receive their vaccination.
