OHIO – Governor Dewine rolled out a new vaccination plan for Ohio during January 7 Press conference.
The Governor said on Thursday, Ohio will launch an online tool on http://coronavirus.ohio.gov where individuals will be able to see who is distributing vaccinations in their counties to what eligible group. Dewine said, “as more vaccinations are available, more providers will be added.”
Vaccines will now be available to those with severe congenital, developmental, or early-onset medical disorders, people in age groups from 65 and above starting with 75, 70, 65 per week, and starting the week of February 1st, they will begin to vaccinate Ohio school personnel.
Dewine said, this week we are sending forms to be signed by superintendents we are asking them to agree to go back to full in-person or hybrid learning by March 1st. That is a condition of getting the vaccine.
Governor Dewine is asking schools how many people are interested in taking the vaccinations vs not. During vaccinations of retirement homes Dewine learned that 60% of the staff chose not to take the vaccination when offered.
