3/23/2021- The Clinton County Health District (CCHD) is now scheduling COVID-19 vaccination appointments for all Clinton County residents 16 years old and older. Of the 1,400 COVID immunizations being given by the CCHD this week, there are approximately 120 appointment times available on Friday, March 26. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has authorized the CCHD to schedule anyone 16+ to fill the remaining time slots this week.
Currently, the CCHD is providing only the Pfizer brand of COVID vaccine. Pfizer vaccine is a two-dose vaccine given 3 weeks or greater apart; There is no maximum threshold requirement between the 2 doses. Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine approved for individuals as young as 16 years old.
How to Register – Eligible Clinton County residents may register in two ways on-line OR by phone as we continue to accommodate our citizens not comfortable with electronic technology:
Appointments may be immediately scheduled on-line at the link above. Additional dates and time slots will be added as vaccine supply becomes available. Check back often.
COVID-19 Variant of Concern – The CCHD was notified yesterday afternoon by state health officials that a COVID-19 case within Clinton County has been identified as a “variant of concern” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) based on genetic sequencing. This notification confirms what has been suspected by the leveling off of the decrease in the number of cases in the Southwest Ohio region over the last few weeks. These variants are of concern due to their increased transmissibility, or their ability to spread quickly. The CCHD strongly urges continuation of the use of facial coverings, social distancing, handwashing, and staying home when sick to reduce spread until everyone is vaccinated who wants or can be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Children’s Immunizations – CCHD has now resumed our children’s immunization program on a limited basis. These immunizations are by appointment only by calling (937) 382-7221 x 125; No walk-ins appointments are available.
