January 15 - What you Need to Know about Phase 1B Vaccine Distribution

  • Vaccination Phase 1B begins January 18 for people 80+
  • Search the Ohio Department of Health online tool for a list of Phase 1B vaccine providers. The list is searchable by county and zip code. You will need to contact providers directly to schedule according to the posted guidelines for each provider. 
  • Health officials recommend calling your primary care provider and hospital system first, as they may have more availability based on their hospital system affiliation. Many primary care providers have reached out to their patients who qualify. This may be a more convenient option as the public health options may fill up very quickly. 
  • Columbus Public Health appointments are being scheduled by phone by calling 614-645-1519. Phone volume is heavy so please try again if phone lines are busy. 
  • Columbus Public Health appointments will be made for Monday, January 18 through Saturday, January 23 – pending vaccine availability. Vaccines will be administered at the Ohio Fairgrounds Celeste Center, 717 E 17th Avenue BY APPOINTMENT ONLY (no walk-ins). The hotline and vaccination registration number will accept calls 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.
  • Local pharmacies are also getting a supply. These locations are also listed on the Ohio Health Department website.  
  • Currently, there is more demand than supply, but vaccination distribution will continue to grow as supply increases.
