Following the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s phased distribution plan, we have worked the past few weeks vaccinating individuals in 1A and 1B. We will be in phases 1A and 1B for the next several weeks. In addition to first doses, we will begin administering second doses this week for individuals in 1A and 1B. We will announce on social media and through local news when we are approved to move into phase 1C.

We would like to ask the public to please be patient as we move through this process. All appointment slots are currently full. Appointments will come available as vaccine doses are received by the health department. We will share information on our website, social media, and with local news outlets when vaccines become available. We are working diligently to ensure that everyone who wants a vaccine gets one as soon as possible.

Norton Call Center has been set up for anyone who has questions about the COVID-19 vaccine. The call center is open 24 hours a day/7 days a week and can be reached at 1-800-722-5725. In order to slow the spread of COVID-19, we must continue to follow recommendations provided by the CDC, the state, and Governor Andy Beshear. Practicing social distancing is the most important method for staying healthy. We urge Barren River residents to stay at home, and leave only for essential items such as groceries and medications. When possible, choose online ordering, delivery, and curbside pickup services to obtain these items.
