Who can be vaccinated in Kentucky? 

Kentucky is vaccinating people in phases 1A, 1B and 1C of its vaccination plan. Phase 1A includes employees and residents of long-term care facilities and health care personnel. Phase 1B includes first responders, K-12 school employees and any ages 70 and up. 

March 1, Kentucky moved to phase 1C, which prioritizes people ages 60 and older, anyone 16 and older with a medical condition that places them at highest risk from the virus as per the CDC, and all other essential workers not covered in phases 1A and 1B. However, some vaccination sites are still working to get through phases 1A and 1B before moving to 1C. 

March 22, Kentucky expanded phase 1C to include all Kentuckians ages 50 and older. Gov. Beshear says everyone 50 and older should check with providers in their area to try and sign up for appointments March 22 and beyond. 

Currently, everyone 16 years old and older is eligible for a vaccine in Kentucky.
