The vaccine will be provided to as many citizens who wish to receive it. Citizens are encouraged to schedule an appointment time at https://gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov. You can input the zip code in the search bar, and then click on ‘availability’ under the appropriate location. This will show you the available times.

Once you schedule your appointment, you will be sent a confirmation code by email. Bring this code with you to your appointment. If you have difficulty scheduling online, call the Ohio Department of Health at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH or visit https://vaxchat.ohio.gov.

If your church, business or organization would be interested in having a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at your location, send an email to COVID19@gcph.info with “on site vax interest” in the subject line. Provide a contact name, email and phone number for the person who will coordinate a date and time. It would also be helpful to provide GCPH with the number of people wishing to receive the vaccine.
