Covid Vaccine Will Be Available for Those 50 and Older in Ohio


Gov. Mike DeWine announced starting on Thursday, Ohio will vaccinate those 50 and older.

This comes after last week when those who were 60-64 years old were permitted to receive the vaccine. DeWine also said on Monday that those with type 2 diabetes and end-stage renal disease are also eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccination.

It was just a year ago today on March 9th 2020 when DeWine announced the first Covid-19 cases in the state of Ohio.

The vaccine is available also to pregnant women, those with ALS, people with type 1 diabetes, those in child care and funeral services and members of law enforcement. As of last Friday, there have been 17,502 Covid-19 related deaths in Ohio.

Just last week Gov. DeWine laid out the plan for lifting all health mandates in the state when Ohio can reach 50 cases per 100,000 people.
