Clinton County Health District, OHIO Announces Next Phone Bank For COVID-19 Vaccinations Scheduling for Ages 65 Years Old and Older
The Clinton County Health District (CCHD) will host its next phone bank to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments for those individuals 65 years old and older. On Friday, February 26, 2021 beginning at 9AM and ending at 1PM, Clinton County residents may call (937) 382-3829, option 0 for appointments for the week of March 1, 2021. Please note:
CCHD will be providing the Pfizer brand vaccine for these appointments. The Pfizer brand of vaccine is a 2-dose series given approximately 21 days apart and requires a special ultra-cold freezer to store safely. The Board of Clinton County Commissioners used CARES funding to purchase this equipment.
If you are unable to get an appointment with the CCHD, you may visit Ohio’s Vaccine Provider webpage to find other vaccine providers. This page of providers is updated as new providers become available, not only in Clinton County but also throughout Ohio. The web address of this page is: https://vaccine.coronavirus.ohio.gov/
Ohio Phase 1B Specific Medical Conditions – On February 15, some Ohioans born with or who have early childhood conditions that are carried into adulthood, which put them at a higher risk for adverse outcomes due to COVID-19, became eligible for vaccination in Ohio. These individuals should contact their treating medical providers for guidance as many of these providers have affiliations with hospitals that receive vaccine. The Ohio Department of Health has also encouraged those treating medical providers to reach out to their patients with these specific medical conditions.
