COLUMBUS, OH (STL.News) Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced today that Ohio’s state-sponsored Cincinnati and Columbus pop-up mass vaccination sites will open next week.
Both vaccination clinics will offer the Pfizer vaccine to those eligible to be vaccinated under the Ohio Department of Health’s vaccination plan. Individuals who receive their first dose of vaccine at a pop-up site will be guaranteed their second dose at the same site approximately three weeks later. Details on how to register for an appointment will be available in the coming days.
The 50,000 total vaccine doses that will be available as part of these pop-up mass vaccination clinics are being reallocated from Ohio’s unused long-term care vaccine supply that was initially required by the federal government to be set aside for use in Ohio’s more than 2,400 long-term care facilities as part of the federal long-term care program. Ohio has already administered nearly 160,000 reallocated doses from the program.
