KY National Guard supports Madison County Health Department with vaccination clinic

BEREA, Ky. (WTVQ) – Hitachi Astemo Americas, the Madison County Health Department and the Kentucky National Guard partnered up to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to people in the area. Wednesday’s clinic offered either the Johnson and Johnson or Moderna shot. Organizers say around 50 people came through to receive their vaccine.

“This has been one of the first missions that I’ve had where I’ve been able to work with my community and it’s been the most rewarding mission that I’ve worked so far,” says Captain Amy Vanhook of the Kentucky National Guard. “I think really it means a lot seeing a lot of people come through wanting to get vaccinated.”

The Kentucky National Guard says it works in clinics like these all over the state and even does home-bound vaccinations for people who can’t leave their house. The Kentucky National Guard says it will continue to support health departments with events like these as long as the need is there.
