FRANKFORT, KY (WOWK)—On Thursday, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced in his COVID-19 press briefing that 16,000 vaccine appointments would be available next week.
He urged Kentuckians to sign up for whichever vaccine was available to them in order to stay ahead of the spread of the various COVID-19 variants that have been found all over the country.
Beshear said not to wait for the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine as the commonwealth would not receive nearly as many doses of J&J as they previously expected. He went on to say, “If Kentuckians wait for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, we may not win the race against the variants.”
