December 20 - The Worthington Community Center is out of COVID-19 test kits.
There are no more COVID-19 test kits available at the Worthington Community Center. We are working with our partners at Columbus Public Health to get more, but do not have any information about when they might be available. We will update the community on our website and social media pages if we get a new supply.
People may be able to purchase test kids from your pharmacy or get tested at a pharmacy location.

COVID-19 Vaccine Now Available for Children 5-11
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending everyone ages 5 and older get a COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against COVID-19. Children ages 5 years and older are able to get an age-appropriate dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
Why Get Your Child Vaccinated
The vaccine is safe and effective at protecting young children from severe complications from COVID-19. While children are less likely than adults to get severely ill from COVID-19, more than 2,000 Ohio children under 18 have been hospitalized with COVID-19, and 15 have died. Vaccinating your child also helps prevent them from becoming sick from COVID-19 and spreading it to vulnerable family members and the community. Child doses are available at all Columbus Public Health vaccine clinics, as well as pharmacies, doctor's offices and other nearby medical facilities. Find your vaccine location here.
