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.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
