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.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
