COVID-19 vaccines

Lexington is working to safely and effectively distribute vaccinations by partnering with state and local public health officials. Fayette County has been a leader in the state with the most eligible residents being fully vaccinated. Working together, we continue to protect our community at a higher rate than the rest of our nation. (This page was last updated on July 29, 2022.)

Testing is still an important tool in reducing the spread of the virus. Get COVID-19 testing information.

Find details from the CDC regarding the vaccine and children.

You can find the statewide vaccine information by visiting vaccine.ky.gov or calling the vaccine hotline at 1 (855) 598-2246.

The VaccineFinder webpage provides information on locations in your area providing vaccinations. The CDC supports this resource; however, it may not have all locations listed. Check back to the list below for the most up-to-date known locations in Fayette County offering vaccines.

Continue to follow public health guidelines in regards to those who are not fully vaccinated – wear a mask, maintain a social distance and continue to wash your hands repeatedly.

The CDC has released guidelines to follow once you've been fully vaccinated.

There is no cost to get the vaccine. The federal government has purchased all vaccines being administered in the United States.

United States scientific studies show the COVID-19 vaccine is safe and very effective. All approved vaccines have gone through the same vaccine safety system as other vaccines produced over the years.

The vaccine cannot give you the disease and will help you keep from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19. Once you receive the vaccine, you may experience some side effects, like sore muscles, feeling tired, or getting a mild fever. Having these side effects does not mean you have COVID-19, it merely means the vaccine is working to teach your body how to fight COVID-19.

Different vaccines require different handling processes and follow-up schedules.
