LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Health officials across the country are rolling out COVID-19 vaccines, but there are many questions about when and where people in Kentucky and Indiana can sign up.
Here is a list of resources to help you find an appointment.
Kentuckians age 16 and older are eligible to make a vaccination appointment. Anyone younger than age 18 must receive the Pfizer vaccine, per U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines. Those who are age 18 and older will also be eligible for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Each Kentucky county has its own plan for the COVID-19 vaccine clinics. Be sure to visit your local health department's website and follow it on social media for the latest updates.
There are also multiple options for signing up in Jefferson County. The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness offered the following tips to keep in mind when scheduling your vaccination appointment:
- Do not sign up with multiple providers. Due to available supply, appointments are limited.
- It may take several weeks to get an appointment.
- If you have health insurance, including Medicare, you must bring your insurance card. There is no cost to you, regardless of your insurance status. All sites operate by appointment only and will require proof of age (such as a valid state identification) on arrival.
The city's website directs anyone with questions about the vaccination process to email COVIDvaccine@louisvilleky.gov. Elderly people or those without access to a computer are encouraged to ask a family member or friend for help, or call 502-861-4499. You can also try Louisville's COVID-19 helpline at 502-912-8598.
