A free COVID-19 vaccine clinic is getting close to wrapping up as tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. will be your last chance to come down to HWY351 to the FEMA community vaccination center in Henderson.

Shots have been given out at the Henderson County Cooperative Extension building and officials say it’s been a huge success.

“We had a good six week line," said Russel Bergman, division supervisor for FEMA. "We’ve hit almost over 1200 doses provided to the citizens of Kentucky and the surrounding states, as well.”

The free shots are being given out right off of highway 351 in Henderson behind the farm bureau insurance office, and you’ve still got one more day to come down and get your first vaccine, and it couldn’t be easier.

"We’ve got very good, competent, and efficient staff that is able to get our folks in about three minutes, and then there’s a fifteen minute waiting period, and then they’re usually out the door in less than 20 minutes total,” said Bergman.

And for those worried about only being able to get your first dose done before this vaccine clinic closes, you can get your first dose Thursday, and then they’ll schedule your second at a location near you.

“There will be opportunities for people to get the Pfizer vaccine, which is what we’re providing here at other area locations like Walgreens, Walmart, CVS and those areas as well," said Bergman.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
