While many parts of Kentucky, and the nation, are reporting lower demand for COVID-19 vaccines, one partnership in Owensboro is offering a drive-through vaccination clinic Thursday.

The partnership includes the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce, Green River District Health Department, and First Christian Church.

Chamber President Candace Castlen Brake says she’s hoping this clinic is as successful as the previous one her group sponsored.

“The last one we had, the health department team had to go back and get more J&J’s,” Brake said, referring to the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. “Because a lot of men were coming to get the single vaccinations, and they could do it there, and if they had a little bit of anxiety, it was more private, because they got to sit in their car.”

The upcoming drive-through clinic will offer a choice of the Johnson & Johnson shot, or the two-shot Moderna vaccine.

It’s being held in the parking lot of Owensboro’s First Christian Church Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Brake says Thursday will also mark the first in-person Chamber of Commerce breakfast event since the pandemic began in early 2020.
