- The Barren River District Health Department is currently administering COVID-19 vaccine for individuals in Phase 1A and 1B. Our agency will have the capacity to add to our current waiting lists on Monday, January 25th with the understanding the waiting lists will contain more names than available vaccines. At this time, the waiting lists are only for individuals 70 years of age and older. We have been informed by the Kentucky Department for Public Health that we will not receive any primer doses (first doses) for at least three-four weeks. Starting with the earliest registrant, we will work our way down the lists to schedule appointments based on available vaccine. You can add your name to the waitlist here. You can also find this link on the Barren River Health Department's website. If you do not have internet access and do not have someone to assist you with the online process, please call the Barren River District Health Department at 270-781-8039 and press option 1.
The Medical Center at Bowling Green is continuing to vaccinate healthcare personnel included in the state’s Phase 1a. They have been authorized by the Kentucky Department of Public Health to move into Phase 1b, which includes first responders, anyone at least age 70 and K-12 school personnel. Individuals who qualify under the age requirements for this priority phase can add their name to the scheduling request list by texting SENIOR to 270-796-3200. Alternatively, you can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, date of birth and phone number.
Using either method, your name will be placed in queue and you will be contacted when an appointment time becomes available. Phase 1b includes a large number of Kentuckians and, with the limited supply of vaccine, we ask the public to be patient as we work through the request list.
