LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Governor Andy Beshear has said his goal is to get 90% of the vaccines coming into the state, into people’s arms within the first week of their arrival.
Is he accomplishing that?
So far, the state has received more than 466,000 COVID-19 vaccines and they have distributed about 413,000 which is 88%, not quite at the governor’s goal but close.
Out of the 4.4 million people in the Commonwealth, about 9% have received at least one dose of the vaccine, 91% are still unvaccinated.
In Indiana, 90% of the population is still unvaccinated. The state has administered more than 705,000 vaccines.
Of those who are vaccinated, about 25% are fully vaccinated – meaning they have received both the first shot and the booster.
More than half of the vaccines distributed in Indiana have gone to those 70-years-old and older. Monday, the state expanded to include those 65 and older.
