FRANKFORT, Ky. (KFVS) - Governor Andy Beshear gave a Team Kentucky update on Thursday, November 4.

Governor Beshear and First Lady Britainy Beshear received their COVID-19 vaccination boosters during the update.

“We believe the boosters will give us a level of immunity we probably had early, following vaccination, when our cases and trends were much lower,” said Governor Beshear. “I encourage all eligible Kentucky adults to get a booster.”

He said if Kentucky adults are over 65, have significant underlying conditions or are exposed to many people through their work, they should get a vaccination booster.
