Health department begins phase 1b of vaccine roll out, out of vaccines in less than a day

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Barren River District Health Department is moving forward into Phase 1b of vaccination, which includes first responders, anyone at least 70 years old and K-12 school personnel.

The health department will be vaccinating individuals on Thursday at each of its eight local health departments.

All vaccines the health department currently has have been spoken for, so people who fit the stipulations who have not yet signed up will have to wait until the next shipment of vaccines.

In less than a day, the health department received nearly 3,800 calls regarding the vaccine.

The exact date of the next shipment of vaccines is not yet known, but when it is, WNKY will update the public with information on how to sign up.
