DeWine unveils COVID-19 vaccination dates for Phase 1B

Those eligible in Phase 1B can start receiving vaccines on the following days:

  • Jan. 19: Ohioans 80 and older
  • Jan. 25: Ohioans 75 and older; people with severe medical conditions
  • Feb. 1: Ohioans 70 and older; K-12 staff and personnel
  • Feb. 8: Ohioans 65 and older

Ohioans ages 65 and older who are in long-term care facilities will continue to be vaccinated through those facilities.

Those living outside long-term care facilities will receive vaccines from physicians, local health departments, hospitals, federally-qualified health centers, in-home health service providers, as well as some retail pharmacies, DeWine said.

Approximately 1,700 providers have registered to distribute the vaccine, the governor said. On Monday, the state will host a webinar releasing outlines and expectations, as well as instructions for distribution.
