Gov. Andy Beshear updated the Commonwealth again on Thursday and had big news when it came to vaccinating the Bluegrass state.
On Thursday, Beshear announced 28 new Covid-19 vaccination site, bringing the bluegrass' total to 291 vaccination sites across the state.
“There is now a provider that has vaccine close to where everybody lives in the commonwealth,” said Gov. Beshear. “There are some areas where you might have to drive just a little bit further, but we continue to add new sites for greater convenience. In many ways, we wish you could just call one number to sign up, but we are building for the future so there will be many sites available when vaccine supply increases to what we need.”
