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 12 years and older

— Parental or legal guardian permission is required for minors (12-17 years old)

— Moderna and Pfizer each require two doses. You are not fully protected until 2 weeks after your second dose of vaccine.

Providers are being added weekly. In addition to this list, private healthcare providers may be offering the vaccine. Contact a healthcare provider for details.

FCPH will offer the following clinics next week by appointment only:

Moderna will be offered for individuals 18 and older on Wednesday, June 9. First dose scheduling will be from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Second doses (as previously scheduled) will also be provided at this clinic, which will take place at the health department, 317 S. Fayette Street. Pfizer will be offered for individuals 12 and older on Tuesday, June 8 at the health department. First dose scheduling will be from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. noon. Second doses will be provided to scheduled individuals.

FCPH will be in Jeffersonville at Destination Outlets (store 8580) on Friday, June 11 to administer the second dose of Moderna vaccines to individuals who received their first dose at this location in May.
