LouVax site closed Tuesday
The drive-thru vaccination site at Broadbent Arena in Louisville will be closed on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, due to the winter storm.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The winter storm descending on the city has forced the closure of the Louisville Metro COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic for Tuesday.

In a series of tweets, Louisville Metro Health says, “For the safety of our staff and community we are now closing the LouVax vaccination site at Broadbent Arena tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 16.

“The LouVax team is optimistic that it will be able to overcome delays due to the weather and is considering options for making up the days missed including staying open longer or possibly operating on a Saturday. To those needing to reschedule instructions will be sent by email.

“For those concerned about getting their second doses, 28 days is the recommended interval for the booster but it is ok if vaccines may be administered up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. Per @CDCgov guidance.”

The vaccination clinic had already been cancelled for today.
