Warren County Health Department Is Currently Out Of COVID-19 Vaccines
COVID-19 vaccines will be given to the general public in Ohio starting on Tuesday. To start, Ohioans age 80 and older will be eligible to get their vaccine. Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said earlier this week that this is being done in an effort to vaccine the people first who would be least likely to have a favorable outcome if they had the virus. Although other age groups will become eligible over the next few week, DeWine said all Ohioans who are 80 and above will not be vaccinated in the first week. DeWine also said that there are not enough vaccines currently in Ohio to vaccine everyone who is age 80 or older.
According to a message on the Warren County Health Department's website, all the vaccines they currently have and expect to get over the next week have already been requested. They website also has interest list where people who are eligible can indicate that they want to receive the vaccine. The website said that there may be more doses received on Jan. 25. That is also the day that people with co-morbidities are eligible to receive the vaccine. To sign up for the interest list, visit Warren County Health District COVID-19 Vaccination Interest List (google.com).
According to the Ohio Department Of Health website, places in Warren County that may be offering the vaccine include Atrium Medical Center, HealthSource Lebanon, two Discount Drug Mart locations and seven Kroger Pharmacy locations.
