Gov. Mike DeWine announced additional details on the state’s ongoing preparations to rollout a centralized scheduling system for COVID-19 vaccines. The announcement was made during his briefing Tuesday afternoon.
The following announcements have been made:
- Due to severe weather across Ohio and the country, vaccine shipments coming to providers directly from Pfizer and Moderna could be delayed by 1-2 days, Gov. Mike DeWine said. Smaller shipments from the state’s warehouse are being delivered on a 2-hour delay.
- The state announced a series of virtual conversations to discuss the COVID-19 vaccines. On Feb. 22 it will focus on the African American population. On Feb. 23 it will focus on the Latino population. On Mar. 1 it will focus on Asian American, Pacific Islander population. These will be carried live on Facebook and shared on coronavirus.ohio.gov.
- At the start of January, 47 percent of the state’s school districts were fully remote. That number is down to less than 15 percent today, DeWine said, adding that he expects that number to go down more later this week.
