Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky Jacqueline Coleman Visited OHRH Today

Coleman speaking with pharmacy leaders

Jacqueline Coleman, Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky, visited the COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital this morning. She encouraged the clinic staff, met with local leaders and spoke to the media at a brief press event.

“For the last year, the medical community has the borne the burden of this pandemic,” Coleman said. “To be able to see, after a year of anxiety and uncertainty and isolation, the gratitude that so many of these folks have for the medical community is heartwarming.” Healthcare workers now get to be “what I consider the light at the end of the tunnel for so many Kentuckians,” she said. “To know that this site alone has distributed over 70,000 vaccinations - they have 1,200 scheduled just today - is remarkable and it speaks to the progress we’re making all across Kentucky.”
