Governor Andy Beshear says Kentucky’s expanded COVID-19 vaccination campaign is aimed at making it convenient for people to get the shots needed to defeat the coronavirus. The governor visited a newly opened community vaccination center in Henderson. Beshear says that no matter where people live, there's a convenient place to get the COVID-19 shot.

Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman said Wednesday that the smaller vaccination sites opening statewide will help reach the governor’s goal of 2.5 million Kentuckians receiving at least their first COVID-19 shot. The state reported 747 new coronavirus cases and nine more virus-related deaths Wednesday.
