Franklin County's Vaccine Program

(Brief intro here, including high-level overview of phased approach. )

Phases and Tiers

(Active phase/tier is highlighted and open by default)

  • Phase 1
  • Phase 2
  • Phase 3 – 4


Based on guidance from the Ohio Department of Health, FCPH is no longer able to provide first doses of vaccine to those in Phase 1A. As mentioned above, if you are in group 1A and received your first dose from FCPH you will be contacted directly when there are available slots and is time for you to schedule your second dose.

During Phase 1A, which began December 14, 2020, priority was given to vulnerable individuals who live in close proximity and those who care for them:

  • •  Healthcare workers and personnel who are routinely involved in the care of COVID-19 patients.
  • •  Residents and staff in nursing homes.
  • •  Residents and staff in assisted living facilities.
  • •  Patients and staff at state psychiatric hospitals.
  • •  People with developmental disabilities and those with mental health disorders, including substance use disorders, who live in group homes, residential facilities, or centers, and staff at those locations.
  • •  Residents and staff at our two state-run homes for Ohio veterans.
  • •  EMS responders.

Ohio's Vaccine ProgramVaccinations in Phase 1B began the week of January 19. Governor DeWine announced a tiered system for offering vaccinations to the estimated 2.2 million people who are eligible for the vaccine under this phase, beginning with those who are 80 or older. When a new age group begins, vaccinations may not be complete for the previous age group. It will take a number of weeks to distribute all of the vaccine given the limited doses available.

  • •  Jan. 19, 2021 – Ohioans 80 years of age and older.
  • •  Jan. 25, 2021 – Ohioans 75 years of age and older, and those with congenital and early onset health conditions who are 75 years of age and older (at this moment FCPH is only scheduling first doses for our residents 75+)
  • •  Feb. 1, 2021 – Ohioans 70 years of age and older, and K-12 School Personnel (The Franklin County Educational Service Center is coordinating school personnel vaccinations directly with the schools. Personnel will receive information from their school. FCPH will not be vaccinating this group in 1B.)
  • •  Feb. 8, 2021 – Ohioans 65 years of age and older.

When Phase 2 begins, vaccine is increasing and available for other specific critical populations who choose to be vaccinated.

Vaccines will not yet be available for all Ohioans.

More details will be available here soon.

Once the vaccine is widely available, Ohio will continue to strategically vaccinate Ohioans if they choose.

During these phases, vaccines will begin to be available to all Ohioans.

More details will be available here soon.
