Helpful Information and Resources
Coronavirus vaccines will be distributed to older Ohioans starting with the oldest Ohioans (age 80 and older), who are also among those at the highest risk for complications from the virus. Vaccines will be available to these individuals starting the week of Jan. 19, 2021. Each week after that, the minimum age for vaccinations will drop five years until all Ohioans age 65 have access.
Doses are still limited and will be distributed over a number of weeks to specific groups of people in this phase.
The estimated schedule is as follows:
- Week of Jan. 19, Ohioans age 80 and older will begin to receive the vaccine.
- Week of Jan. 25, Ohioans age 75 and older can get vaccinated; those with severe congenital or developmental disorders.
- Week of Feb. 1, Ohioans age 70 and older and employees of K-12 schools.
- Week of Feb. 8, Ohioans age 65 and older.
Where will vaccines be available?
Older Ohioans will be given vaccinations by local health departments, hospitals, federally-qualified health centers, and some retail pharmacies.
