LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – The last day for individuals to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at the Community Vaccination Center at the Laurel County Extension Office is June 9.
The last day for the Henderson County Extension Office center is June 10.
The centers are operated by the counties and the Commonwealth of Kentucky and supported by FEMA. Individuals can simply walk up without an appointment to receive a vaccination.
“We appreciate the work of everyone who helped these centers provide vaccinations to so many people,” said Gracia Szczech, FEMA Region IV Administrator. “The centers were established in locations accessible to socially vulnerable populations and they were successful in their mission. Now, FEMA will continue to support the Commonwealth of Kentucky and local communities with resources as they reach deeper into communities.”

In most cases, an appointment is not necessary.
