The Bluegrass state is getting another increase in its vaccine supply.
On Tuesday, Gov. Andy Beshear announced the federal government increased Kentucky’s vaccine supply for the third time in three weeks, this time by six percent.
“The White House announced that we are going to get six percent more next week, that is on top of the previous increases and will have us up 28% over what we were previously getting three weeks ago,” said Gov. Beshear. “It’s not enough, but it’s great.”
The Bluegrass state added 2,339 new cases on Tuesday and 35 deaths. 4,126 Kentuckians have now passed away due to the virus.
The top counties with the most positive cases on Tuesday all come from outside of our tri-state. Jefferson, Fayette, Kenton, Boone, and Madison had the most cases, and each reported at least 80 new cases today.
