U of L administers more than 100,000 vaccinations at Cardinal Stadium site Friday, Apr 16 2021 

By Madelin Shelton — 

This week, the University of Louisville opened Kentucky’s newest and largest drive through vaccination site at Cardinal Stadium. In nearly a week, U of L Health has administered nearly 100,000 vaccine doses, with hundreds of thousands of upcoming appointments.

David McArthur, director of public relations for U of L Health told the Cardinal that when planning, U of L wanted the vaccination site to be as quick and convenient as possible.

“The Cardinal Stadium site was built big to maximize efficiency, decrease wait times and increase convenience,” McArthur said.  With 24 lanes in total, McArthur said that the site is capable of administering over 4,000 vaccines a day, in addition to U of L’s other locations in Jefferson and Bullitt counties.

As for whether U of L has enough vaccines to vaccinate the entire U of L community, McArthur said that supply was keeping up with demand.

“Between now and May 28, we have nearly 200,000 appointments available at the U of L Cardinal Stadium,” he said. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the university is confident that they will have over 200,000 doses of the vaccine to fulfill those appointments.

Anyone above the age of 16 is eligible for a vaccine, at no cost to them. To schedule an appointment for vaccination, sign up through U of L Health’s website. For any questions about the vaccine, more information is available on U of L Health’s FAQ page.
