UPDATE: 1:40 p.m.: Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear says its Kroger regional vaccine clinic sites at the Kentucky Horsepark in Lexington, the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington and the Greenwood Mall in Bowling Green will be closed Thursday, Feb. 11 due to impending weather. All appointments are being rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 18 at the exact time and location of the original appointment.
