More than 8,800 Kentuckians have taken the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Gov. Andy Beshear said Tuesday that the current allocation from the federal government will allow the state to distribute the vaccine to more than 202,000 people.
The second Moderna shipment will be less than first planned, but Pfizer’s third shipment will be larger than its second, Beshear said.
“The total allocation, what should be received in the Commonwealth by the end of this month, it’s 202,650 doses, and remember they hold the booster,” he said. “So, these are 202,650 individuals that can be vaccinated here in Kentucky. That’s really exciting.”
