This week, Hamilton County will centralize its COVID-19 vaccine administration at the Hamilton County Board of Elections Early Vote Center, located at 2300 Wall Street in Norwood.
Beginning Friday, Jan. 22, residents contacted by Hamilton County Public Health will make appointments to receive the vaccine. Vaccines are by appointment only.
Sherry Poland, Director of Elections, notes that the Early Vote Center has free parking and is near several bus lines.
“The space also allows us to efficiently administer vaccines, with ample room to move people through, while providing enough space for people to remain following their vaccine to check for vaccine tolerance,” adds Hamilton County Public Health Commissioner Greg Kesterman. “We are tremendously appreciative that the Board of Elections is providing this space for us and the residents of Hamilton County to more efficiently receive vaccine.”
Vaccines are being distributed in phases according to priority groups established by Gov. Mike DeWine and the Ohio Department of Health. The state currently is in phase 1A and plans to launch phase 1B — which includes Ohioans age 65 and older, those with severe congenital, developmental, or early-onset and inherited conditions, and adult employees in K-12 schools who currently or plan to educate in person — this month once more allotted vaccines are available.
