COVID-19 Vaccine Availability

Ohio is distributing safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines statewide to all those who choose to be vaccinated. This rollout is being performed in conjunction with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM).

The Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty) vaccine has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the prevention of COVID-19 in individuals age 16 and older. The Pfizer vaccine continues to be available under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA for:

Vaccines from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) have been granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA. The Moderna vaccine is available under EUA for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals

Ohio's goals are clear: to save lives and get students back in schools. To learn more about the vaccine rollout and distribution, visit the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 Vaccination Program site.

Online Scheduling Available

Vaccine appointments can be easily scheduled online. If you have an existing Premier Health MyChart account and are 40 years of age or older, you likely received an appointment scheduling request when you became eligible for the vaccine. You can use this request to schedule your vaccine appointment through MyChart.

If you do not have a Premier Health MyChart account or do not have an active appointment scheduling request in your MyChart account, you can still schedule online (when appointments are available). 

Walk-ins Welcome

An appointment is requested but not required for COVID-19 vaccinations. Walk-ins are welcome at some locations and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to those with appointments.

No Cost To Get Vaccinated

If you choose to get a COVID-19 vaccine, you will not have to pay. Vaccine doses purchased with taxpayer dollars will be given to Ohioans who choose to receive them at no out-of-pocket cost.

Thank You For Your Patience

We’re confident that everyone in our communities who wants to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and is eligible will be able to do so. However, this major effort could take several months. As the situation continues to evolve, we will do our best to keep you up to date. We appreciate your patience as we work through the complex process of getting these new vaccines into our communities.
