Vaccination Eligibility Expands In Kentucky


(Frankfort, KY) - Eligibility for a coronavirus vaccine is expanding in Kentucky Monday. 

Those 18 and older are eligible for the Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccines, while those as young as 16 can sign up for the Pfizer vaccine.

Governor Andy Beshar said last week that there's been an increase in cases and hospitalizations among younger people.  He says it's believed the increases are due to the "more aggressive variants" of the virus.
