(Lexington, KY) - The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination for children in Kentucky and Indiana is underway.

The FDA gave final approval Tuesday night for administering the vaccine to children between five and eleven-years-old. Officials say vaccinations will initially be given in pediatric and primary care offices, as well as designated pharmacies. 

Kentucky Children's Hospital is planning a vaccine clinic, but specific public clinics for children won't be widespread.

In Indianapolis, public health managers have opened a mass kids vaccine clinic at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

It's open from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m Tuesday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturdays.
