KENTUCKY (WEHT) The Green River District Health Department says people in phase 1C – with an emphasis on those aged 60 and older – can sign up for the COVID vaccine waiting list.

The GRDHD is still vaccinating tiers 1A and 1B, but says they want to make sure they are administering 90-percent of all doses within 7 days of arrival. To do that, they are expanding their waiting list.

Phase 1b consists of people who are at least 70 years old, first responders and educators. Phase 1c consists of people over the age of 60, anyone 16 or older with CDC highest risk C19 risk conditions, all essential workers.
