Officials with Deaconess said Friday that Deaconess Henderson and Union County Hospitals were expanding vaccine eligibility to all individuals age 60-years-old and above.

“While Kentucky is still in Phase 1B, locations with capacity to do so may transition into Phase 1C, according to the Kentucky Department of Public Health,” said Brian Spencer, PharmD, Pharmacy Service Line Manager, Deaconess.

According to Deaconess, individuals now able to schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine 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)
  • Individuals age 60+ who live or work in Kentucky

Childcare workers who live or work in Kentucky can also now schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine after those individuals were added into Phase 1B of the vaccine distribution plan by Gov. Beshear.

Now that patients whose appointments were delayed have been rescheduled, Deaconess says appointments at Deaconess Henderson Hospital are available as soon as March 4, while 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.

Appointments can be made online at www.deaconess.com/DHHvaccine for Henderson, or (at a later date) www.deaconess.com/DUCvaccine for Union County.
