Gov. Beshear: Additional December Vaccine Shipments Expected

Gov. Beshear: Additional December Vaccine Shipments Expected
Both Moderna shipments will arrive in December, shortly after initial Pfizer shipment

This is copied from my daily email from the Governor:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 7, 2020) – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear announced the state is expecting two additional COVID-19 vaccine shipments before the end of the year. In total, the state expects at least 38,000 Pfizer doses and 109,000 Moderna doses in December.

The Governor expects more Pfizer allocations to be announced at a later date, possibly before the end of the month.

“The end of this virus is out there. We can see it, and we can feel it. But it’s still months away, and until then, we’ve got to do the right things to protect one another, knowing that when we work hard, we save the lives of those around us and ensure we have the health care capacity we need,” said Gov. Beshear.

The Governor expects Kentucky will receive approximately: 38,000 Pfizer doses the week of Dec. 13-19 (previously announced on Nov. 30); 76,000 Moderna doses the week of Dec. 20-26; and more than 33,000 Moderna doses from Dec. 27-31. Gov. Beshear reminded Kentuckians that while these numbers are the state’s best estimate at this time based on available information from the federal government, they are subject to change.

Each of these doses will go to a different Kentuckian; they are the initial shots that will be followed up with a booster vaccine about three weeks later. Both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines require an initial dose and a booster dose.

Case Information
As of 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 7, Gov. Beshear reported the following COVID-19 numbers:
