OHIO – Governor Dewine is reporting that 61% of Ohio’s Nursing homes have now been offered the COVID-19 first shot vaccine, but he also reports that staff members are declining more than accepting the vaccines.
Dewine says that 75-80% of residents in Ohio nursing homes are accepting the COVID-19 vaccine when offered, and a surprising 60% of staff members who take care of the residents are declining the shot.
Some have speculated that staff members are younger and healthier, that they decline the vaccine in order to get more to the people who need it most. Others blame controversy around the shot and not being safe.
In Wisconsin, a pharmacist attempted to ruin hundreds of doses of the coronavirus vaccine because he believes the shots would mutate people’s DNA.
Johnsons and Johnson is attempting to release a single dose vaccine this week, if approved it would be the first vaccine that would only require one dose.
