First family rolls up their sleeves for flu shots

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - To bring greater awareness to the important protections vaccines provide, Gov. Andy Beshear, First Lady Britainy Beshear and their children, Will, 11, and Lila, 10, rolled up their sleeves and received flu shots this week at the Capitol.

Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman, commissioner of the Department for Public Health Dr. Steven Stack and American Sign Language interpreter Virginia Moore joined the Beshears on Thursday to receive a vaccination against the seasonal flu.

"Britainy and I, and our kids, receive a flu shot each year at this time, because we know it is the single most effective way to prevent the flu," Gov. Beshear said. "The availability and affordability of the vaccine make it easier than ever to protect yourself and your family, which is especially important this year as we continue to battle COVID-19."

The Governor emphasized the importance of getting a flu shot this year to blunt the potential for what the medical community fears could be a "twindemic" if seasonal flu outbreaks overwhelm health care systems already stretched thin by COVID-19.

By Scarlett Birge, student news writer,
Office of University Communications

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. - Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University, said the 115th year of CU is a quest for "safety, sensitivity and security," amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We all need each other during this time," he said. Carter said the last six months had appeared to put us all "in a state of slumber" while being shut down and doing everything to contain the virus. Carter said urging everyone on campus to be responsible means that "we all wake up out of this state of slumber."
