As we receive vaccine from the state, Mercy Health will schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for those identified in the vaccination plan outlined by The Kentucky Department for Public Health.
We appreciate your patience as we work through the process of providing vaccines to those in our communities.
- Phase 1A is for health care workers such as physicians, nurses, dentists and technologists.
- Phase 1B includes first responders, anyone age 70 or older, and K-12 school personnel.
- Phase 1C includes anyone age 60 or older, high risk patients age 16-59, and essential workers.
- Phase 2 includes anyone age 40 or older.
- Phase 3 includes anyone age 16 or older.**
**With parental or legal guardian consent, individuals ages 12-17 will be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, which is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for use in people younger than 18.
At this time, there is limited vaccine supply and we schedule patients as the vaccine is available. We expect these appointments to fill up quickly and appreciate your patience as we work through the process of providing vaccines to those in our communities.
Schedule a Vaccine
Appointments are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
New and existing patients can now reserve their vaccine by making their appointment online.
If you have trouble finding an appointment or if you prefer to speak to one of our service experts, call the Mercy Health COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST to schedule an appointment or to get additional information about the Mercy Health locations which are offering the COVID-19 vaccine.
Depending on which brand of COVID-19 vaccine you receive, you may receive a single-dose or you may need to return to the same location for a second dose.
- The Janssen/Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is a one-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
- For the Pfizer vaccine, your second shot will be scheduled as close as possible to 21 days after the first shot.
- For the Moderna vaccine, your second shot will be scheduled as close as possible to 28 days after the first shot.
Because of the limited COVID-19 vaccine supply, we are unable to guarantee whether you will receive the Janssen/J&J, Moderna or Pfizer vaccine until you arrive at your appointment.
What to bring to your appointment
You will need to bring the following items to your appointment:
- A mask (if you do not have a mask, one will be provided)
- Form of identification.
- Insurance card
- An attestation form is available for you to print and complete prior to your appointment.
Patients visiting our Mercy Health Physicians practices and clinics are encouraged to come without visitors, but one person will be allowed to accompany the patient to a visit if needed to ensure appropriate understanding and implementation of care plans discussed at the visit or to support physical needs of the patient.
Canceling your COVID-19 vaccine appointment
Please note that there is limited COVID-19 vaccine supply and we schedule patients as the vaccine is available. If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason, we will not be able to reschedule your appointment at the time of cancellation and you will need to restart the scheduling process when we receive additional vaccine.
To cancel a confirmed appointment, please log-in to your MyChart account or call 866-624-0366 and press three.
