Ottawa County seniors 80 and older will begin to receive a limited number of COVID-19 vaccine from the State of Ohio sometime starting the week of Monday Jan. 18, reported the Ottawa County Emergency Management Agency.
Providing the vaccinations will be the Ottawa County Health Department (OCHF), Magruder Hospital and the Kroger Pharmacy in Port Clinton. OCHD and Magruder Hospital officials will be contacting only those who have pre-registered on the Ottawa County Health Department web site to arrange vaccination appointments.
No walk-ins will be accepted.
To pre-register, go to the OCHD web site at www.ottawahealth.org, call United Way’s 2-1-1 for assistance or contact Ottawa County Senior Resources at 419-898-6459 or 1-877-898-6459.
If an appointment is made, arrive at your scheduled time, not early. Bring your ID and insurance information. There will be no out-of-pocket charge.
To get the initial vaccination, you must commit to returning for the second dose, which will be administered three to four weeks after the first dose.
