HENDERSON AND MORGANFIELD, KY – Individuals age 60+ are now in the group of Kentucky
residents and workers who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at Deaconess Henderson Hospital
or Deaconess Union County Hospital.
“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.
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.
Appointments can be made online at www.deaconess.com/DHHvaccine for Henderson, or (at a later date)
www.deaconess.com/DUCvaccine for Union County.
