FCPH is very aware is it a stressful and frustrating time. We ask for your patience.  Please understand that we do not have control of how much vaccine we receive, that is decided by the Ohio Department of Health.  Once we know the number of vaccinations we have we schedule people in the appropriate groups as quickly as possible.

Check back often for updated information.

Tier 1A Information

Tier 1A appointments will be scheduled when FCPH receives a vaccine allocation for that group. Check back for details. 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.

Vaccine Safety

None of the COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States use the live virus that causes COVID-19. There are several different types of vaccines in development. However, the goal for each of them is to teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms, such as fever. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building immunity.

It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity after vaccination. That means it’s possible a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and get sick. This is because the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection.
