fulton county (Ohio) covid-19 vaccine distribution information

Fulton County (OHIO) 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.


Fulton County Health Department (FCHD) and Fulton County Health Center (FCHC) continue to work through the Phase 1B tiers.

🛑Due to severe weather across Ohio and the country, vaccine shipments for this week have been delayed.

📆As we finish up the 75+ age group, we now expect to begin scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments for those in the 70 years old and above age group the week of March 1st instead of February 22nd like we had stated earlier. The rate of vaccinating Fulton County residents continues to depend on the availability of vaccine.

As you are waiting to be vaccinated, please continue to be diligent in:
👏 washing your hands for at least 20 secs
😷 wearing masks
 ↔️ maintaining 6 ft distance
👨‍👩‍👧‍👦reserving close interactions to our immediate family/household

🙌 We appreciate your continued patience!!

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.
