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.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
