Update for March 2, 2021 (8 a.m.): Continuing Phase 1B, Opening Phase 1C and Phase 2
Richland Public Health continues to vaccinate people in the age 65 and over group with first and second doses. Allotments of vaccines are still limited at most locations in Ohio. Appointments may still be hard to get.
The good news is that a new vaccine has been approved (Johnson & Johnson). However, it may be several week before vaccinations open up for those under age 65, even those those 60 and above will be eligible.
Here’s Ohio’s plan for Phase 1C and Phase 2 (dependent on vaccine allotment):
- Pregnant women, those with Type-1 diabetes, those with bone marrow transplants, those living with ALS will be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine as part of Phase 1C beginning Thursday, March 4.
- Additionally, law enforcement and corrections officers, funeral home workers and childcare providers will also be eligible to get the vaccine starting Thursday, March 4.
- Phase 2 of vaccinations will also begin Thursday, March 4, which will include those who are age 60 and above. Two-thirds of the state’s hospitalizations have come from this age group.
- Approximately 941,000 people are included in Phase 1C and Phase 2.

Until all Richland County providers get a larger allotment of vaccines, scheduling will continue to be difficult. Please be patient. We want to make sure everyone who wants a COVID-19 vaccination can get one. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will begin distribution in March which will help the demand.
