COLUMBUS — Gov. Mike DeWine has confirmed plans for continuing to deliver the coronavirus vaccine to Ohioans, based on age, in ranges of five years.
It began at 80 years old and above, then went to 75, and down to 65 where it remains today.
“The next big move is going to occur when we move from 65 down to 60 and then down to 55,” DeWine said at his briefing Monday.
Here’s the catch.
DeWine hasn’t said yet when the next group will be approved for the vaccine. It could be well into March before it happens.
“We don’t know. It’s a matter of weeks,” DeWine said.
He declined to estimate how long it would be before 60 year-olds could get the vaccine. The move is designed to allow a greater percentage of the 65 and older crowd to get the vaccine before any changes are move. DeWine declined to identify how many people of the 65 plus group would have to get the vaccine before any changes would be made.
DeWine also made the following announcements:
