January 22 - Vaccine Updates

Supply of the COVID-19 vaccine continues to be limited. Public health departments, primary care providers, and local pharmacies are scheduling appointments for people who are eligible in this current Phase 1B as their supply allows. 

Search here for providers by county and zip code. Each provider is managing its own reservation system.   

Depending on available supply, the vaccine will be available to the following age groups according to this tentative schedule:

  • Week of January 19 - 80 years of age and older
  • Week of January 25 - 75 years of age and older; those with severe congenital or developmental disorders.
  • Week of February 1 - 70 years of age and older; employees of K-12 schools remaining or returning to in-person or hybrid models.
  • Week of February 8 - 65 years of age and older.
  • As the weeks progress the previous age groups are still eligible to receive the vaccine moving forward. 

Columbus Public Health & Franklin County Public Health

What you Need to Know about Phase 1B Vaccine Distribution (updated 1/19/2021)

  • Vaccination Phase 1B begins January 18 for people 80+
  • Search the Ohio Department of Health online tool for a list of Phase 1B vaccine providers. The list is searchable by county and zip code. You will need to contact providers directly to schedule according to the posted guidelines for each provider. 
  • Health officials recommend calling your primary care provider and hospital system first, as they may have more availability based on their hospital system affiliation. Many primary care providers have reached out to their patients who qualify. This may be a more convenient option as the public health options may fill up very quickly. 
  • As of Tuesday, January 19, 2021, Columbus Public Health has received a limited amount of COVID-19 vaccine doses and can begin scheduling again for eligible residents in Phase 1A or those 80 years of age or older in Phase 1B. Call 614-645-1519 to schedule an appointment
