By West Kentucky Star Staff
BOWLING GREEN - Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear on Friday visited the state's regional vaccination site in Bowling Green.

On Thursday, Gov. Beshear announced the state is opening an additional 28 vaccination sites in partnership with Kroger, for a total of 291 sites across the commonwealth with a provider now close to where everyone lives in Kentucky.

The Bowling Green site is prioritizing Kentuckians 70 and older. Phase 1A and 1B individuals in the region are encouraged to sign up for rolling, seven-day appointments at or by calling 866-211-5320.

The Bowling Green regional vaccination site is located at:

Greenwood Mall (Former Sears Location)
2625 Scottsville Road, Bowling Green, KY 42104 

The site is open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Kentuckians with questions about eligibility or how to sign up can visit the state's Find a Vaccine website, view the Kentucky vaccine map or call the Kentucky vaccine hotline. The hotline – 855-598-2246 or TTY 855-326-4654 (for deaf or hard-of-hearing Kentuckians) – is available 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.

Beshear said each regional vaccination site brings the state one step closer to its goal that every Kentuckian will be able to receive a vaccine without having to travel further than one county away.
