Stay Healthy at Transy: Getting vaccinated

We have been extremely encouraged by the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Kentucky, in Lexington and especially on Transylvania’s campus, where many of our faculty, staff and students have already received one or both doses of the vaccination. The end of this pandemic is within sight, and we look forward to the days ahead when we can return to business as usual in our classrooms and our residence spaces.

Where can I get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Transylvania is partnering with Baptist Health to provide students, faculty and staff with access to COVID‑19 vaccine appointments. To schedule one, please go to www.ScheduleYourVaccine.com. The Baptist Health vaccine clinic is in Lexington Green off Nicholasville Road. If you are unable to secure an appointment at that link, please contact Robin Prichard at rprichard@transy.edu.
