Owensboro's Kentucky Wesleyan College is hosting a COVID-19 vaccine clinic for its employees and students on several dates in April.

According to KWC, the vaccine will be administered on-campus on Friday, April 9, starting at 1:00 p.m. in the Activity Hall. Individuals who receive their first dose on April 9 will then be able to receive their second dose on Friday, April 30.

In early March, Kentucky Wesleyan College President Dr. Thomas Mitzel announced KWC's intentions to return to a fully operational residential campus in the fall of 2021.

President Mitzel says the vaccine will play a crucial role in making those intentions a reality.

“The availability of the vaccine and an opportunity to host a clinic on campus makes our return to a fully residential campus an even greater reality,” said Mitzel. 

To schedule a vaccination time on April 9, call Linda Keller at 270-852-3110. KWC says that vaccinations are being scheduled sequentially, so a specific appointment time is required.

The vaccine clinic being hosted by KWC is in partnership with Poole's Pharmacy Care.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
