With COVID-19 numbers spiking across our area, the Green River District Health Department (GRHD) offered free vaccines to anyone at First Christian Church.
From 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, the GRHD was offering free vaccines to anyone who drove up. This was the fourth time the health department has offered this free mobile vaccine, and with the Delta variant spreading rapidly across our tri-state, the number of participants almost doubled.

“We have had it in the community multiple times," said Anita Owens, director of nursing at GRHD. "This is the best turnout we’ve had, so it has done very well today. I’m going to say in the previous times, we’ve been in the 30s, and we are past 50 today.”
GRHD was offering the choice of all three vaccine, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer.
And if you missed out on this opportunity at a shot in the arm, you can schedule an appointment at the GRHD off of Breckenridge Street in Owensboro.
