COVID-19 Vaccine

January 18, 2021: Beginning Monday, January 18th, seniors age 70 and older who are in Phase 1B of vaccine distribution may contact T.J. Regional Health to sign up for the vaccine waiting list. Please choose ONLY ONE of the following options to get on the list:

Fill out the online form at tjregionalhealth.org/vaccine

OR

Call 270.659.1010

Please do NOT sign up both ways. Duplicate entries will delay the process once we begin calling patients to schedule appointments.

The online form is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The phone line will be open Monday – Friday from 8am – 4pm until further notice. There is tremendous demand and high volume, so please be patient.

At this time, the waiting listing is for Phase 1B - seniors age 70 and older.

Details for Phases 1C and beyond will be announced in the near future as more information becomes available.

What is the phone number to sign up for the vaccine list?

You may call 270.659.1010. The vaccine line is active Monday – Friday from 8am – 4pm until further notice.

Can I schedule a vaccine appointment?

We are not currently scheduling vaccine appointments. We are building a list based on who is interested in receiving the vaccine, so that we can call them with an appointment time once we have vaccine in our facilities.

I'm on the vaccine wait list. Now what?

We do not yet have vaccine for those 70 and older, but when we receive it we will begin calling those on our list to make appointments. Due to a high volume of requests, please allow up to two weeks (maybe more) for a member of the T.J. team to contact you to schedule your vaccine appointment. Your patience is greatly appreciated!

How long will it take to receive a call back for an appointment?

If you call or go online to get on the list, a scheduler will call you to schedule an appointment as the vaccine becomes available.

We do not yet have an estimated time of arrival for the vaccine for those 70 and older. Please understand that it could be several days (or possibly a few weeks) before you receive a call to schedule an appointment.

If I call to sign up AND fill out the online form, will I get in quicker?

PLEASE sign up only ONE time. Choose either phone or online, but not both. Signing up multiple times will delay the process.

Can anyone sign up now?

At this time, we are only taking names of those who are in Phase 1B - 70 or older. We are not able to take sign-ups for Phase 1C, Phase 2, 3, or 4 at this time.

General information about the COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Moderna and Pfizer received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA in December 2020, and we anxiously anticipate the time in the near future when it will be available to the general public. The initial allocations, which are shipping in limited quantities have been prioritized for healthcare workers, first responders, and long-term care facility residents.

T.J. Regional Health has the Moderna Vaccine, which can be given to adults 18 years and older in two doses, 28 days apart. Our team works closely with the Kentucky Hospital Association and the Kentucky Department for Public Health (KDPH) to follow the vaccine prioritization guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Because current supplies are limited, the vaccines will be distributed to the community in phases based on risk of exposure and disease severity, as outlined by the KHPH and the CDC. For more frequently asked questions about COVID-19 vaccination, visit Kentucky's official vaccine page or cdc.gov.

WE ARE NOT YET ABLE TO PROVIDE THE VACCINE TO THE COMMUNITY. While we realize that there is a tremendous sense of urgency for those who want the vaccine, please understand we must follow the guidelines for vaccine distribution. As soon as we are “given the green light” and have the vaccine available, we will begin scheduling patients in an efficient and orderly fashion to ensure that everyone who wants to be vaccinated is able to do so.

As additional information and timeframes become available, we will provide updates on our website and on our Facebook page, including critical information on where and how to get a COVID-19 tests and vaccinations.
