KY Continues to Expand Vaccination Network
By West Kentucky Star Staff, The Associated Press
FRANKFORT - More COVID-19 vaccination sites will open across Kentucky next week.

The network of vaccination sites will grow to 291 next week with the new openings of regional centers in Albany, Cadiz, Campbellsville, Hartford, Marion and Maysville.

"There is now a provider that has vaccine close to where everybody lives in the commonwealth," said Gov. Andy Beshear. "There are some areas where you might have to drive just a little bit further, but we continue to add new sites for greater convenience. We are building for the future so there will be many sites available when vaccine supply increases to what we need."

The governor said Thursday that more than 555,000 Kentuckians have received at least their first dose of vaccine. But the state’s ability to provide shots still far outpaces available supplies.

Beshear reported 963 new cases of the virus and 37 deaths. The deaths include 2 in Caldwell County, 1 in Christian County, 1 in Graves County, and 3 in Marshall County. 

Kentucky's positivity rate currently stands at 7.07 percent.
