While more than 41 million doses of vaccines against COVID-19 have been distributed, just over half of them have actually been administered so far.
While across the nation, hospitals say they are desperate for doses, the same is true in Kentucky.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear shared, the state can handle 4-times the amount of vaccinations they currently getting supply for.
"We believe that we could vaccinate 250,000 Kentuckians a week, right now and we are still building up. But if we are only getting 56,000 doses it is an extreme limitation."
However, Governor Beshear says all long term care facility residents and staff have received their first dose.
That means more of the state's allotment each week can now be shared with other groups.
