LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear says COVID-19 vaccines will be available for free at the Kentucky State Fair through Aug. 28. Fairgoers 12 and older do not need to RSVP or schedule appointments but must provide identification or proof of health insurance and state residency to receive a dose. Those who receive vaccinations will be eligible for a free unlimited rides wristband and a $20 gift card to spend on food and other items at the fair, while supplies last. Around 2.4 million Kentuckians, or 55%, have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
