Fulton County partners are working together to distribute COVID-19 vaccines in line with the state of Ohio’s plan for prioritizing people at the greatest risk for being exposed to the virus, and those more likely to experience severe illness. COVID-19 vaccine distribution information for Fulton County (Ohio) will be shared widely as we move through the Phases. Please check this page regularly for the most up-to-date information.
Vaccinations in Phase 1B are expected to begin the week of January 19. Governor DeWine announced a tiered system for offering vaccinations to the estimated 2.2 million people who are eligible for the vaccine under this phase, beginning with those who are 80 or older. When a new age group begins, vaccinations may not be complete for the previous age group. It will take a number of weeks to distribute all of the vaccine given the limited doses available.
- The week of Jan. 19: Ohioans 80 years of age and older.
- The week of Jan. 25: Ohioans 75 years of age and older; those with severe congenital or developmental disorders.
- The week of Feb. 1: Ohioans 70 years of age and older; employees of K-12 schools that wish to remain or return to in-person or hybrid models.
- The week of Feb. 8: Ohioans 65 years of age and older.
Vaccines will continue until Phase 1B is vaccinated.
