Last week, Governor Beshear announced that Kentucky is moving into the Phase 1C COVID-19 vaccination stage beginning on Monday, March 1. Phase 1C includes people aged 60 years or older, anyone with CDC highest risk C19 conditions, and all essential workers.
St. Elizabeth will continue to vaccinate Phases 1A and 1B and will partner with the Kentucky department for Public Health (KDPH) to receive more vaccine allocations to further vaccinate Phases 1A, 1B, and 1C populations. The recent federal allocation expansion news and timing that Kentucky may receive added weekly quantities, will likely have a positive impact on allocations for the Northern Kentucky region.
