Governor Discusses Covid Vaccine for Kentucky

Gov. Beshear says he believes Kentucky will get the first allocation of the Pfizer vaccines in early December, which will be 38,025 doses. He says the two groups that will receive that vaccine first will be long-term care residents and staff, and frontline COVID-19 healthcare workers.

“Those will be provided to 38,000 individuals. We can go ahead and provide the first of these shots, and then we will receive the booster shots about three weeks later,” said Gov. Beshear. “We will be ready on moment one that we’re able to provide these vaccines.”

The state is also expecting more than 76,000 Moderna vaccines in late December.
