H1N1 Vaccine still not in Central KY

The H1N1 vaccine is in the state, but still not in central Kentucky.

Now health officials say it could be next week before health care workers can get it.

The Fayette County Health Department says they will tentatively vaccinate workers next Friday.

This comes as word the state has tripled their order of the vaccine, to be distributed to the public.

Kentucky already has 11,000 nasal spray vaccines, but those will go to the healthcare workers.

With this newest order, the total number of vaccines available in the state will be 72,000.
