February 2021: Join the Vaccine Waitlist for the Pennyrile Region

COVID-19 vaccines are now being administered across the country. If you reside or work in the Pennyrile Health District (Caldwell, Crittenden, Livingston, Lyon or Trigg County) and would like to be placed on our vaccine waitlist please fill out this form.  You will be contacted in the order that current guidelines allow.

Still have questions about the vaccine? The CDC is continually updating their site as they learn more about the virus and the effectiveness of the vaccine. See their FAQ page about the vaccine here. They tackle questions such as:

  • What’s the cost of the vaccine? 
  • Can I stop wearing my mask after I’m vaccinated? 
  • If I’ve already had COVID-19, do I still need a vaccine? 

Read answers to these questions and more, here.
