MCHD COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics
Due to drastically decreased demand for the COVID-19 vaccine, the MCHD conducted our final first dose drive-thru clinic on Wednesday, April 7. The MCHD will continue to hold our drive-thru clinics for those who are scheduled to receive their second dose through May 7, and smaller vaccination clinics will be held based on demand. Multiple providers are now offering vaccine in our local area. For a list of options, visit https://gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov/. Anyone still interested in getting the vaccine through MCHD can call 419-586-3251 extension 1462 to be put on a waiting list for a future vaccination opportunity.
