LIMA — Starting Monday, all adults and teenagers age 16 and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccines in Ohio, as health departments and pharmacies are now seeing some appointments go unfilled due to rapidly increasing supplies of the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Ohio’s central scheduling system was updated last week to reflect this change, allowing young adults in some cases to reserve an appointment early at clinics with empty slots.

And Allen County Public Health’s mass vaccination clinics will start this Wednesday at the former Knights of Columbus Hall, offering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine to anyone at least 18 years old each week from Wednesday through Saturday, part of an effort to quickly ramp up vaccinations across the state.

Gov. Mike DeWine on Thursday estimated that Allen County Public Health should receive roughly 2,500 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine this week.

Twenty-three percent of Allen County residents have already received at least one shot, including 66% of seniors 70 years and older, according to Ohio Department of Health data.

How to get a shot

Ohio launched an online scheduling tool to help Ohioans determine their eligibility and find an appointment nearby, available at gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov.

While Allen County Public Health has started using the site to schedule its mass vaccination clinics, most other vaccination providers in the area are still directing people to call or visit separate websites to reserve a shot.

Clinics may ask for your date of birth and insurance information to bill for administration fees, although fees are typically waived when a person is uninsured. Some clinics also ask to see identification.
