Toledo-Lucas County Health Department Receives COVID-19 Vaccine
Sylvania News

The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department has received its initial shipment of  the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. These vaccines will be distributed locally in line  with Ohio’s Phased plan, offering the first vaccines to health care workers, EMS responders, and people who are at the greatest risk for severe illness. Vaccine  recipients will include health care workers, EMS personnel, and people with  developmental disabilities who live in group settings.

The two vaccines that have been approved and recommended to prevent COVID 19 require two injections, with several weeks between them, before they begin to  offer the best protection. The vaccine received today will be the first dose for  those in the identified critical groups. A second dose will be delivered and  administered in the future. 


TLCHD expects to continue receiving regular vaccine shipments, but doesn’t yet  know how long it will take to administer vaccines to everyone who wishes to  receive them as part of Phase 1A. As TLCHD receives additional vaccine, those  who fall within Phase 1 priority groups, will be offered the opportunity to get the  COVID-19 vaccine. This process will continue to involve working with first  responders and representatives of health-care organizations and long-term care facilities. 

If you believe you or your organizations is a part of Phase 1A, one person from  your organization should complete the online form allowing TLCHD to gather  initial information. Availability of vaccines will depend on future shipments from  the state of Ohio.  

COVID-19 vaccines are not yet available for the general public. As information  about the next phases of vaccine distribution becomes available, TLCHD will  ensure this is made public. 

Accurate and updated information about vaccines is critically important and can  be found on the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department’s COVID-19 Vaccine page.
