The Northern Kentucky Health Department has announced it is expanding its eligible vaccination population to Phase 1B — K-12 School personnel and individuals ages 70 and older. 

Previously, only those in Phase 1A, including residents of long-term care facilities and assisted living facilities, health care personnel and first responders were able to get the vaccine. Their vaccination will continue as the state moves to Phase 1B.

If you live in Boone, Campbell, Grant or Kenton County, sign up for a vaccine appointment at Or, starting Jan. 19, you can also register by phone at 859-363-2120.

NKY Health, which has partnered with St. Elizabeth Healthcare and HealthPoint Family Care, says vaccines will be available by appointment only for those who qualify. 

  • Walk-ins will not be permitted; the vaccine dosage is limited to those who have registered.
  • At the time of your appointment you will need to provide a Kentucky ID to verify your residence. 
  • If someone schedules an appointment to receive the COVID vaccine but they do not meet current verifications, they will not get it.
  • Those who arrive without an appointment will also not be vaccinated. 

Per a release from NKY Health, "As part of Phase 1B, St. Elizabeth Healthcare will also be vaccinating K-12 School personnel for public and private schools in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton County school districts over the next few weeks. They are working directly with school administrators to schedule vaccine appointments at designated clinic locations for all personnel who have requested a vaccine."
