Since being approved as a vaccine provider, Premier Health has vaccinated patients at clinics in Montgomery, Warren and Miami counties to prevent the spread of coronavirus and variant strains.
As of Sunday, 4,104,194 people in Ohio have received one dose of the vaccine and 2,615,916 people have finished the vaccination, according to the Ohio Department of Health.
More than 35% of Ohioans have started the vaccine and 22% have completed it.
This week, vaccine providers are able to allocate up to 25% of its doses to vaccinate employees. Providers can also partner with employers, labor unions and other organizations to have closed vaccine clinics.
This is also the second week of on-campus vaccination clinics at Ohio’s colleges and universities.
The state hopes that bringing vaccines to students and workers will encourage more people to be vaccinated. With many students leaving for summer break in early May, Ohio is working to have as many students as possible before they leave campus.
Premier Health and Miami Valley Hospital patterned with UD for a vaccine clinic on Sunday at UD Arena. More than 1,100 people were vaccinated, including some employees. The clinic was opened to employees after it appeared there would be leftover doses.
