A total of 23,955 people have died from COVID-19 in the state of Ohio as of Saturday. 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.

Nearly 55.1% of Ohioans, or nearly 6.44 million people, have have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, including 66.47% of adults and 64.39% of those 12 and older.
