Vaccine scheduling information at Owensboro Health
The Kentucky Department of Public Health (KDPH) is overseeing the COVID-19 vaccination process. Owensboro Health is currently administering the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines. As of January 27, any new first-dose appointments scheduled will receive the Pfizer vaccine. The second-dose vaccines will be from the same manufacturer as the first dose received.
Current vaccination criteria
If you meet the criteria below, you are currently eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine:
- Age 60+
- Childcare workers, correctional staff, K-12 educators or staff, healthcare workers or first responders who live or work in Kentucky
If you do not meet the current vaccination criteria you will not be able to receive a vaccination and will be asked to reschedule. Eligibility will be verified with either a workplace ID, badge or pay stub to prove vaccine-eligible employment, or an ID indicating date of birth.

What to know before scheduling your appointment
Do not schedule a vaccine right now if:
- You have had a serious or anaphylactic reaction to any other vaccine in the past. You must talk to your doctor first.
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding (talk to your doctor first).
- If you have had a positive COVID-19 test in the last 90 days.
- You have had any other vaccination in the past 14 days, including a flu shot.
Do not schedule your second dose now. You will schedule your second dose while at your first shot appointment. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require an initial vaccine and a booster. The Pfizer vaccine requires a booster 21 days later and the Moderna vaccine requires a second dose 28 days later.
After you schedule your appointment
- You will receive a confirmation email, text and/or MyChart message. Please check your email for appointment confirmation.
- Log into MyChart to complete eCheck-in prior to arriving for your appointment.
- Plan to bring your insurance card(s) to your appointment.
- If you are eligible due to being a healthcare worker or first responder, bring your employee ID or other proof of employment, such as a paystub.
- If you are eligible due to age, bring an ID that can verify your birthdate.
- Also, bring your work schedule/calendar with you, as you will schedule your second vaccination while at this appointment.
- You will be at your appointment for about 30-45 minutes. Plan to wait at least 15 minutes on site after receiving your vaccine.
- If you need to reschedule, call 270-685-7100 and choose option 6 (Owensboro locations only).
Who pays for the vaccine?
- The federal government is covering the cost of the vaccine itself, but health care providers are charging a fee (between $20-$30) for administering the vaccine.
- Please bring your insurance card so your insurance company can be billed.
- No costs are passed on to individuals. You will NOT be charged.
