New coronavirus cases mostly in unvaccinated Kentuckians
FRANKFORT, Ky (AP) — Kentucky public health commissioner, Dr. Stephen Stack says that nearly all coronavirus cases reported in the last four weeks were in unvaccinated residents. Roughly 99% of those hospitalized were also unvaccinated. Dr. Stephen Stack says that “these vaccines work, they work against every known variant of concern and interest out there right now.” While 2.2 million, about 49% of Kentuckians, are vaccinated, rates vary sharply among different age groups. While 82% of Kentuckians 65 and up are vaccinated, only one-third of young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine.
