Appointments now open for Kentucky’s largest drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination site
UofL Health is once again expanding access to COVID-19 vaccinations. Cardinal Stadium’s Purple Lot will become Kentucky’s largest drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination site with the ability to vaccinate up to 4,000 people per day, for seven weeks.
“Increasing health care access is part of UofL Health ongoing commitment to the Commonwealth, and Cardinal Stadium provided an ideal location,” said Jason Smith, chief medical officer, UofL Health. “We have interstate access off both I-65 and I-264, and we are in close proximity to west and south Louisville, both federally designated Medically Underserved areas.”
The 24-lane drive-thru site opens to the public April 12. Appointments are available for anyone ages 16+ by going to www.UofLHealth.org or calling 502-681-1435. The phone number is intended for those with limited web access. If you have web access, please use the online scheduling to keep the phone lines available for those who need to call.
UofL Health is committed to meeting people where they are to ensure as many people as possible receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Throughout the year, UofL Health has partnered with dozens of churches, many in Medically Underserved Areas, to host pop-up vaccine clinics. UofL Health also has drive-thru vaccine sites at Mary & Elizabeth Hospital, Medical Center South in Bullitt County and downtown Louisville at the corner of Brook Street and Liberty Street.
