Ottawa County is set to receive over 1,200 doses of Covid-19 vaccines in the coming days for Ottawa County residents, and will be administering the second of the two vaccines this week. First vaccinations will resume next week, according to officials.
Both the Ottawa County Health Department and Magruder Hospital have been working diligently to vaccinate the oldest populations first and work their way down to vaccinate all that are eligible in accordance to Phase 1B.
While Ottawa County leads the state of Ohio in percentage of its population vaccinated at 18.49%, officials are aware that they still have a long way to go. Their plan is to finish vaccinating those that are registered and eligible under Phase 1B this week and start vaccinating those who qualify under Phase 1C and Phase 2 next week.
Residents who have registered through the health department to receive a vaccine and have not been contacted by either Magruder Hospital or the Ottawa County Health Department, contact the Health Department at 419-734-6800 and select Option 2; or contact Magruder Hospital at 419-301-4304 to schedule an appointment.
The Ottawa County Health Department is also in the process of finalizing plans for vaccine distribution to homebound individuals. If you are homebound or know someone who is homebound in Ottawa County, contact the Health Department at 419-734-6800 and select Option 1.
My thanks to the Health Dept. and Magruder for an organized, friendly, easy vaccination set-up.
