A total of 26,063 people have died from COVID-19 in the state of Ohio as of Sunday. The state updates death data twice a week. Because other states don’t regularly report death certificates to Ohio’s Bureau of Vital Statistics, death data can fluctuate.

As of Sunday, 57.21% of Ohioans, or nearly 6.7 million people, have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, including 67.88% of adults, 65.78% of those 12 and older, and 60.8% of those 5 years of age and older.
