About 221,000 people took the first round, phase 1A, of the COVID-19 vaccine. While some are still in that phase, the next one will start for others.

Phase 1B will start with anyone 80 years or older.

As phase 1B continues, the current plan is to subtract five years each week from the previous eligible age group.

  • Jan. 25 - Ohioans 75 and older
  • Feb. 1 - Ohioans 70 and older
  • Feb. 8 - Ohioans 65 and older

During the week of Feb. 1, Gov. DeWine says school personnel will begin to receive the vaccine, but only if the district commits to returning to in-person or hybrid learning by Mar. 1.
