The Medical Center at Bowling Green Authorized to Move into Phase 1b

The Medical Center at Bowling Green is continuing to vaccinate healthcare personnel included in the state’s Phase 1a. We have been authorized by the Kentucky Department of Public Health to move into Phase 1b, which includes first responders, anyone at least age 70 and K-12 school personnel. Individuals who qualify under the age requirements for this priority phase can add their name to the scheduling request list by texting SENIOR to 270-796-3200. Alternatively, you can also email vaccine@mchealth.net with your full name, date of birth and phone number. Using either method, your name will be placed in queue and you will be contacted when an appointment time becomes available. Phase 1b includes a large number of Kentuckians and, with the limited supply of vaccine, we ask the public to be patient as we work through the request list. 

Please note: It may be several days before you receive your call due to overwhelming response. There is no need to text or email multiple times. Repeated submissions will reset your request to the current date and you will lose your earlier spot on the list. Please do not call the hospital switchboard. We thank you for your patience.
