Submitted article



WILMINGTON – The Clinton County Health District is now scheduling for COVID-19 vaccination appointments in accordance with Ohio’s phased eligibility requirements for next week — the week of March 15.

This includes those individuals 50 years old and older, those in certain occupations, and those with certain qualifying medical conditions.

Phase 1C occupations

On March 4, certain occupations became eligible to receive COVID vaccine — those include some childcare service providers in Ohio’s Professional Registry, funeral services, and law enforcement/corrections officers.

Many individuals in these occupations have already been vaccinated by the CCHD through coordination through the employer/agency head. If you fall within one of these eligible categories, please reach out to your employer/agency head.

Phase 1D medical

Some individuals with specific medical conditions now qualify for vaccine. Effective Thursday, March 11, newly eligible conditions added are Type 2 diabetes, and end-stage renal disease (also known as end-stage kidney disease)

Pre-register

Eligible Clinton County residents may pre-register in two ways on-line OR by phone as we continue to accommodate our citizens not comfortable with electronic technology:

1. Online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C19VaxSurvey

2. Call 937-382-3829 and follow the message prompts

The CCHD will continue to not take a “wait list” when all available slots are full. The online survey and the phone pre-registration will be cleared from week to week.

Individuals are registering at multiple vaccine provider locations and this allows the opportunity to refresh our pre-registration to serve more Clinton County residents.
