FREE COVID-19 vaccines at convenient school locations on July 6, 7, and 8 and July 27, 28, and 29

We need your help to achieve FCPS Community Immunity!

Fayette County Public Schools has partnered with the City of Lexington, HealthFirst Bluegrass, Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, and Wild Health to offer FREE COVID-19 vaccines at convenient school locations on July 6, 7, and 8 and July 27, 28, and 29.

Individuals who receive both their first and second dose at these clinics would be fully vaccinated the first week of school and may not have to quarantine if they are exposed to COVID-19 in the future. Everyone 12 years of age or older is eligible to be vaccinated at no cost.

If you are already vaccinated, please help us spread the word and encourage others to protect themselves and their loved ones against COVID-19. If you or members of your family who are 12 years of age or older are not yet vaccinated, please sign up for one of the vaccination clinics that will be offered from 1 to 6 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Tuesday, July 6 (second dose on July 27): Bryan Station High, Frederick Douglass High, Lafayette High, Paul Laurence Dunbar High, Tates Creek High, and William Wells Brown Elementary*
  • Wednesday, July 7 (second dose on July 28): Crawford Middle, Edythe J. Hayes Middle, Leestown Middle, Lexington Traditional Magnet (LTMS)*, STEAM Academy, and Winburn Middle
  • Thursday, July 8 (second dose on July 29): Cardinal Valley Elementary*, Jessie Clark Middle, Martin Luther King Academy, Mary Todd Elementary*, Southern Middle, and 100 Midland Avenue (the former Herald-Leader building).

*HealthFirst Bluegrass will be available at these locations to complete athletic physicals for students who are signed up to receive the vaccination! Reserve a spot to receive a physical by calling 859-288-2425.

To sign up to receive the vaccination, visit:  fcps.net/vaccines. If a student is between the ages of 12 and 17, a parent/guardian will need to complete an online consent form, or be present at the vaccination clinic to provide consent. When you register, please reserve a spot for both the first and second dose. Sites are open to everyone, regardless of school enrollment, attendance, or residence.

Individuals who get vaccinated at one of the “FCPS Community Immunity” clinics will receive two free tickets to an upcoming Lexington Legends game and be entered into a drawing for the “Total Legends Experience,” which includes parking passes, a full tour of the facility, batting practice on the field with the team before a game, a luxury suite for the game, and complimentary food/non-alcoholic beverages.

These clinics will offer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, which is administered as a shot in the arm as a series of two doses, three weeks apart. Studies show this vaccine is 95% effective at preventing COVID-19 illness. For more resources about the vaccine and its efficacy, visit  fcps.net/vaccines.

With your help we can reach #FCPSCommunityImmunity, protect one another, and keep our students in school!
