FRANKFORT, Ky. – Gov. Andy Beshear announced on Tuesday that 1,835,176 people have received at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in Kentucky.
“We’re getting closer to reaching our 2.5 million–vaccine Team Kentucky Vaccination Challenge every day, but we need to pick up the pace, especially among younger Kentuckians,” he said. “There are vaccination appointments available every week, at many different times throughout the day. At some sites, you don’t even need an appointment. Get it done, for yourself and for your community, so we can reach our goal and relax more restrictions.”
The top five counties by vaccination rate are: Woodford (55%), Franklin (54%), Fayette (52%), Scott (45%) and Jefferson (44%). The bottom five counties by vaccination rate are: Christian (17%), Spencer (17%), Ballard (19%), McCreary (20%) and Lewis (20%).
