COVID-19 vaccine timeline

Regional vaccinations centers across Kentucky will begin offering doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to individuals in Phase 1C staring March 1, Gov. Andy Beshear announced Monday.

Beshear said within 1C, people age 60 and older should be the priority. There are more than 1 million Kentuckians in Phase 1C, which includes all “essential workers” as well as those with certain health conditions.

Beshear said local health departments and other partner sites will also begin vaccinating 1C, but they will target the people in 1A and 1B who have still not received a shot.

Owensboro Health previously announced it has already opened its COVID-19 vaccination schedule to individuals aged 60-69.

Similarly, the Green River District Health Department previously expanded their vaccine ability to Phase 1C — with an emphasis on those aged 60 and older — as quantities and appointment times allow.
