While the fight against the virus seems to have turned a corner in some communities, the backlog of people waiting to be vaccinated grows longer, leaving a lot of local hospitals to quickly pivot their plans.

Henderson and Union Counties have been forced to take a step back.

People with vaccination appointments with Deaconess will have their appointments delayed due to vaccine shortages.

Those who have received a first dose of the vaccine at either of these locations will still be able to get their second dose.

Deaconess hopes to receive increased vaccine allotments soon so they can resume with vaccinating those living in Western Kentucky.

But that's left Tri-Staters worried about when they’ll be able to get their vaccine.
