COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION
FROM HURON COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH: In conjunction with Ohio’s statewide efforts to distribute COVID-19 vaccines to Ohioans in Phase 1B starting next week, Huron County Emergency Management Agency (HCEMA) and Huron County Public Health (HCPH) would like to provide Huron County residents with an update on COVID-19 vaccine availability.
We are less than one week away from beginning Phase 1B COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Huron County. Following Ohio’s phased approach, we will begin to distribute vaccine to those residents most at-risk. Beginning January 19, Ohioans aged 80 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Huron County. Phase 1B COVID-19 Vaccine rollout and eligibility is as follows:
Week of January 19: Ohioans aged 80+
Week of January 25
- Ohioans aged 75+
- Ohioans with severe congenital, developmental, or medically vulnerable
Week of February 1
- Ohioans aged 70+
- Employees of K-12 school districts planning to return to class March 1
Week of February 8: Ohioans aged 65+
Unfortunately, the demand for the vaccine remains greater than the available supply currently. Earlier this week, we learned that Huron County’s six vaccine providers have been allocated approximately 700 total doses of vaccine across all providers for the week of January 19th. This quantity of vaccine allocated to Huron County by the Ohio Department of Health is subject to change on a weekly basis.
A list of all COVID-19 providers allocated vaccine for the week of January 19, 2021 in Huron County can be found HERE. This chart also contains information about provider locations, cost, and how to sign-up for a vaccine. A statewide vaccine provider search will also be available at www.coronavirus.ohio.gov starting sometime today.
We ask that residents please be patient with us until a wider supply of vaccine is available. Please continue to use all the tools available to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This is critical until a substantial number of our residents can be vaccinated. Continuing to wear facial coverings and social distance will reduce your chance of being exposed to or spreading the virus. Proper prevention measures, coupled with the vaccine, will provide the best protection from COVID-19.
