The COVID-19 vaccination provider list continues to be updated weekly by Fayette County Public Health (FCPH) for the community to take advantage of.

According to FCPH, “the local vaccination provider list is updated and shared weekly as a courtesy, and availability can change from day to day. Contact the provider of your choice for the latest information on vaccine availability and to schedule an appointment. You can also search for providers by visiting gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov.”

Fayette County Public Health reminds the community that eligible individuals can receive a vaccine from any provider of their choice, and the vaccine is offered at no cost at all locations. Vaccine providers can bill a patient’s insurance for a fee to administer the vaccine but will not be able to charge the patient.

Additionally:

-Pfizer is the only vaccine that has been authorized for 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds

-Parental or legal guardian permission is required for 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds

-Moderna and Pfizer each require two doses. Those who take the first dose are not fully protected until two weeks after the second dose of vaccine.

Providers are being added weekly. In addition to this list, private healthcare providers may be offering the vaccine. Contact your healthcare provider for details. Fayette County Public Health provided the following information:
