Anyone who has an appointment does not need to call Public Health. They will contact you.

The Edison State vaccine clinic for first doses is the only one impacted. Vaccine appointments for second doses will continue as scheduled.

On Tuesday Gov. Mike DeWine noted that some vaccine shipments may be delayed a day or two due to heavy snow and winter storms. The Ohio Department of Health was contacting all vaccine providers and encouraging them to track their shipments.
