FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) - Tuesday morning, Governor Andy Beshear received the COVID-19 vaccine along with his wife.

“Just yesterday the director of the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommended on a call with all governors that we do what we are doing here today. That leadership of our states comes together and what we see today is in a bipartisan fashion-- to show the people of the commonwealth that we have a safe vaccine that is going to help us defeat COVID-19,” said Governor Beshear.

After getting the shot Beshear said, “It’s easier than the test.”

In addition to Beshear and his wife, other members of the government received the vaccine including Kentucky Supreme Court Chief Justice John Minton, Senate President Robert Stivers, Speaker of the House David Osborne, Executive Cabinet Secretary J. Michael Brown, and Commissioner of the Department for Public Health Dr. Steven Stack.
