COLUMBUS, Ohio — On Thursday, Gov. Mike DeWine outlined information about the launching of additional mass vaccination sites across the state of Ohio, which include 11 stationary sites and four mobile clinics.

The mass vaccination sites will be accessible to all Ohioans ages 16 and older and will primarily offer the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, depending on the supplies coming into the state, DeWine said.

The governor said that the plan is to have the new mass vaccination sites begin administering vaccines on Wednesday, assuming the vaccines are delivered on time.

As of now, the following sites will launch next week:

  • Knights of Columbus in Lima- site will be allocated at least 2,500 doses in first week.
  • Lucas County Rec Center in Maumee— site will have 5,000 doses a week.

  • Wayne Street Medical Campus in Marietta—site will have 1,500 doses a week.
  • Colony Square Mall in Zanesville—site will have 1,500 doses a week.

The 11 new mass vaccination sites are in addition to the state’s 1,300 other vaccination sites that have been in operation for several weeks.

Among the four mobile clinics being launched will be the Ohio Northern University mobile clinic serving Harding, Wyandot, Marion, Union, Logan, and Crawford counties—as well as Ohio University's mobile clinic serving Southeast Ohio areas including Lawrence, Meigs, Vinton, Washington, Morgan, and Perry counties.

The two other mobile clinics will be based in Jefferson and Richland counties traveling to surrounding communities.

DeWine said that in total, 571,460 doses of the three vaccines—Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson—will be distributed to the state next week, the highest amount the state has received.

“If you had trouble in the past getting it, this is an opportunity,” DeWine said.
