COVID-19 vaccine clinics aim to reach #FCPSCommunityImmunity

Help us achieve #FCPSCommunityImmunity by signing up to receive the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine! Fayette County Public Schools has partnered with the city of Lexington, HealthFirst Bluegrass, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, and Wild Health to offer the vaccine at district school locations July 6, 7, and 8. Second doses will be available at the same locations July 27, 28, and 29. There is no cost, and each site is open to anyone regardless of school enrollment, attendance, or residence.

Everyone 12 or older is eligible to be vaccinated. Students who receive their first and second dose before the end of July would be fully vaccinated the first week of school. If a student is between 12 and 17, a parent/guardian will need to complete an online consent form or be present at the clinic to provide consent. When registering, please reserve a spot for both the first and second dose. All the 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.

Select the date pairing and location that works best for your schedule, and click on the school name to access the registration details. All clinics will run from 1 to 6 p.m. on the designated day. Please note that the registration links are specific to the health organization administering the vaccine at that site. 

Tuesday, July 6 & Tuesday, July 27

Wednesday, July 7 & Wednesday, July 28

Thursday, July 8 & Thursday, July 29

These four sites will also provide sports physicals. Call HealthFirst Bluegrass at (859) 288-2425 to make an appointment for a vaccine and/or a sports physical at:

  • William Wells Brown Elementary School on July 6,
  • Lexington Traditional Magnet School on July 7,
  • Cardinal Valley Elementary School on July 8, or

Everyone who gets vaccinated at any of the clinics will receive two free tickets to a Lexington Legends baseball game and be entered into a drawing for the “Total Legends Experience,” which includes parking passes, a full tour of the facility, batting practice with the team, a luxury suite for the game, and complimentary food/non-alcoholic beverages. Everyone receiving a vaccine will also be entered into a drawing to win four UK football season tickets.
