Louisville opens its "universal vaccination" site next week

The city of Louisville will open a “mass vaccination” site next week, according to Mayor Greg Fischer, and he announced that with Metro Health’s interim medical director, Dr. Sarah Beth Hartlage, on Tuesday, and said the site will be at Broadbent Arena, located on the grounds of the exhibition center Kentucky. It will open Monday morning, and for now, vaccinations will be limited to people in the Phase 1A group, which includes health care workers, emergency medical teams and medical first responders. Hartlage said she expects about 1,000 vaccinations next week, with those numbers rising to between 1,000 and 1,200 vaccinations per day for the next two weeks, and more than 200 volunteers will be involved in running the vaccination site. Off-site and semi-indoors, making it safe and favorable to cold weather. It’s also easy to get to Louisville’s diverse community, she said, and Hartlag was asked when she thought a vaccine might be available to the general public, and she didn’t expect before summer, but possibly as late as the end of 2021 if there were only two vaccine options. Currently, only two are being dispensed: one made by Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech, the other by Moderna, but the filter supplied by Novavax Inc. He is the fifth to reach the final stage of testing in the United States. From the state’s vaccination plan put together on Monday, saying he hopes to have most long-term care and help living residents get vaccinated by early March. Once Kentucky deals with frontline workers and those who live long-term or live with assistance, the next group of residents will encompass a broader range of ages. The next stage (1B) will be people aged 70 or over, first responders and school staff from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
