Public Health is administering the Pfizer two-dose series of the COVID-19 vaccine to those 16 and older. However, those younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian present when the vaccine is administered.

To register for an appointment to receive your first dose, visit https://gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov or call Public Health at (937) 225-6217, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Walk-ins also will be welcome.

Vaccine clinics were moved from the Dayton Convention Center because of work planned in preparation for upcoming events.

A second new location — SugarCreek in the former Kroger at 900 N. Gettysburg Ave. in Dayton — replaces the Bethesda Temple site because it is a bigger space and will allow Public Health to host larger clinics, the health department said. Start dates and times at SugarCreek have not been announced.
