Will there be enough vaccine to go around?

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to a new group of Ohioans today, but there are still questions about how many doses will be available for later stages in the rollout. 

Ohio residents 75 and older and those with severe congenital or developmental disorders now qualify for the vaccine. 

But as eligibility expands, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is worried about the supply. He sent a letter to President Joe Biden last week outlining his concerns. 

"The most important thing you can do is get us more vaccine," DeWine wrote. "We can deal with most of the other challenges surrounding its distributions, but the need for more is an imperative."

In Kentucky, vaccinations are outpacing doses. 

Last week, the state administered 83,000 doses, but it expects to receive only 56,000 doses this week. Enquirer reporter Anne Saker further broke down what's going on in this story.
