Deaconess said Wednesday that first-dose vaccine allocations from the state of Kentucky had been halted for both Henderson and Union counties over the coming weeks.

According to Deaconess, anyone currently scheduled to receive their first dose at either location will be notified of their postponed appointment by a member of Deaconess staff.

As for those scheduled to receive their second dose of the vaccine, they'll keep their original apointments.

Individuals whose appointments are postponed will receive priority rescheduling when vaccines become available once again, according to Deaconess. 

Deaconess says that due to the reduced allocations, both vaccine appointment registration and waiting list registration have been paused for now.

The hospitals hope to receive increase allotments of the vaccine as soon as possible to continue the vaccination process across western Kentucky.

Kentucky's governor recently announced that the state had partnered with Kroger to set up drive-through vaccination sites across the state, which would also allow any Kentuckian to receive the vaccine at any site, regardless of their county of residence. The governor said that specific site locations would be announced on Jan. 28.

Vaccination sites around the Tri-State and more information on who can receive the vaccine can be found here.
