Over the past week, 127,110 more Kentuckians received their COVID-19 vaccine, according to Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear.
Gov. Beshear says that this breaks the state's previous record of 112,428 total COVID-19 vaccines administered in one week, which was set just one week earlier.
“We are really ramping up to meet the moment and we are going to achieve this goal the President set of having a vaccine available for any Kentucky adult who wants one by the end of May,” said Gov. Beshear.
Despite the state's progress in the battle against COVID-19, the virus is still taking its toll on the Commonwealth.
Gov. Beshear said Tuesday that 880 new positive cases of the virus had been identified throughout the state, and that 21 more Kentuckians had died from the virus.
According to the Kentucky Department for Public Health, that brought the total number of COVID-19 deaths throughout the state to 4,850, and the total number of positive cases to 411,917.
