All KY adults now eligible for COVID-19 vaccination booster

By Crystal Staley/Scottie Ellis

Frankfort, KY - On Monday, November 22, 2021, Gov. Andy Beshear wished all Kentuckians a happy Thanksgiving and provided guidance on how to stay safe and protect loved ones during the holiday week.

"Hospitalizations and requests for monoclonal antibody infusions are ticking up," said Gov. Beshear. "We do not want to see that. We need to be really careful with Thanksgiving this week, as well as Christmas coming up. But unlike last year, there is an opportunity for this holiday season to be safe and pretty normal for you and your family if you follow the precautions you need to."

The Governor encouraged Kentuckians to:
  • Get a COVID-19 vaccination;
  • Get a vaccination booster (all Kentucky adults are now eligible for a booster);
  • Stay home and avoid gatherings if they feel sick;
  • Wear masks if indoors and unvaccinated and/or not boosted, and
  • Keep gatherings small.
