Clinton County Health District, OHIO Announces Next Phone Bank For COVID-19 Vaccinations Scheduling for Ages 65 Years Old and Older

ALL APPOINTMENTS ARE FILLED FOR WEEK OF FEB. 16

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 12, 2021 beginning at 9AM and ending at 10:30 AM, Clinton County residents may call (937) 382-3829, option 0 for appointments for the week of February 16, 2021. Please note:

  • Do not leave a message, we will be unable to return your call.
  • If you do not reach a staff member, please hang up and call again.
  • If you or your loved one is not age 65 and older, please do not call for an appointment. Doing so takes away resources to serve those that are not comfortable using computer technology.
  • Vaccine supply will be even more limited over the next few weeks as vaccine is being diverted to vaccinate K-12 staff throughout the State of Ohio.
  • The phone bank may close prior to 10:30 AM if all available slots are filled before 10:30 AM.

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/

Second Doses for Age 75+ Vaccines – Those individuals age 75 and older vaccinated with their 1st doses on either January 28 or 29 by the CCHD, will begin receiving calls from a representative from our office to remind you of your appointment date and time for your 2nd dose.

Ohio Phase 1B Specific Medical Conditions – On February 15, some individuals with specific medical conditions will qualify for vaccine. These individuals should contact their treating medical providers for guidance as many of these providers have affiliations with hospitals that receive vaccine. CCHD will only receive 100 new doses of vaccine next week and will continue to target those age 65 years and older.

Ohio Phase 1B K-12 School Staff Vaccinations – On February 1, K-12 School Staff became eligible to receive vaccinations. There is a separate vaccine allocation for K-12 School Staff.  K-12 School Staff should contact their school administrators for more information about their vaccination timeline.
