Vaccines now open to all Kentuckians 16 and older
By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen
Frankfort, KY - On Monday, Gov. Andy Beshear said all Kentuckians 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is approved for individuals 16 and older; the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for individuals 18 and older.
"Beginning today, Kentuckians as young as 16 can sign up for their shot of hope," said Gov. Beshear. "This means Kentucky has beaten by a full month President Joe Biden's goal and timeline for all Americans 16 and up being able to get the vaccine. These vaccines are our ticket out of this pandemic. They are not only safe; they are saving lives."
The Governor and Dr. Steven Stack, commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Public Health, shared new guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that fully vaccinated Americans can safely travel domestically. Updated travel guidance will be posted on kycovid19.ky.gov soon.
"We all need to get vaccinated as soon as we can so fewer variants have the opportunity to form," said Dr. Stack. "We've got to stay vigilant. Wear your masks, wash your hands, socially distance and get vaccinated when it's your turn."
The Governor said more than 1.438 million Kentuckians have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose so far.
Gov. Beshear also highlighted five vaccination locations that have many open appointments over the next week:
