Ohio’s COVID Vaccine Provider Website Up and Running

The Ohio Department of Health has a new website of vaccine providers available for the public.

This tool shows providers throughout Ohio that have received shipments of COVID-19 vaccines for those currently eligible to be vaccinated. As more vaccine providers receive shipments, they will be added to this page. Search by county or ZIP code to see a list of providers near you and specific info about their websites and contact information. You will need to contact each provider separately as there is not a uniform statewide system.

This week, those 70 years of age or older are eligible and starting next week, those over 65 can get the vaccine.
