T.J. Regional Health continues to vaccinate healthcare workers while prepping for the next phase of vaccine distribution

Thursday, January 7, 2021

T.J. Regional Health has administered hundreds of vaccines since we received the first Moderna shipment in late December, and we continue to work our way through Phase 1A of the vaccination process.

Phase 1A non-hospital healthcare workers who would like to be added to T.J.’s COVID-19 vaccine scheduling list can do so by contacting the Medical Staff Services office at T.J. Regional Health.

Based on updated information received from the Kentucky Department for Public Health, we anticipate that Phase 1B will begin on or around February 1st. In preparation, we will launch a campaign on Monday, January 18th which will provide community members age 70 and over with specific information on how to get the vaccine once Phase 1B begins.

Also as part of Phase 1B, Dr. Steven Stack, Kentucky Commissioner for Public Health, has indicated that the state is working on a custom plan to vaccinate K-12 educators in each county in Kentucky. Please follow information on the state’s website at for further K-12 updates.

T.J. Regional Health has also set up a vaccine webpage for general vaccine information, and we will provide continued local updates at and on the T.J. Regional Health Facebook page.
