As of Monday, three new groups of Kentuckians became eligible to receive their COVID-19 vaccine at any of the state's regional vaccine sites.
Kentucky moved into Phase 1C of its vaccine distribution plan on Monday, March 1, allowing anyone age 60-years-old and above as well as anyone 16-years-old and above classified as high-risk by the CDC to schedule their vaccine appointment.
Phase 1C also allows all essential workers (non-healthcare) to schedule their appointment.
Anyone made eligible under Kentucky's previous phases (Phase 1A and Phase 1B) can still schedule an appointment to receive the vaccination. You can see each phase of Kentucky's vaccine distribution plan by clicking here.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said that while Phase 1C of the vaccine distribution plan was now active in the state, Kentuckians age 70 and older would still be prioritized to receive the COVID-19 vaccine for now.
