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.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
