LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) – Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton announced the city has hit the streets for its door-to-door vaccine campaign.

Canvassers started their work in neighborhoods along Versailles Road this week, urging folks to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

“We’re leaving no stone unturned,” Gorton said. “Overall, nearly 60% of our adults have been vaccinated. We’re proud of that progress, but we want to get more shots into arms, especially those of young people.”

Canvassers are urging all Lexington residents ages 12 and over to get a vaccine. City officials say a mobile clinic will be set up near Versailles Road neighborhoods at Centro de San Juan Diego, 1389 Alexandria Dr., to offer free vaccines from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 6.
