Update #2 Released: 1/12/2021   

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Here is the latest information we have received from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health as well as a link to the Board's website where residents can register to be notified about vaccine availability for their "group".

We are encouraging all who can to please register your email address for these notifications.

COVID-19 Vaccinations Update from the Cuyahoga Board of Health 1/11/21

Phase 1B Timing

Phase 1B will specifically include those below who choose to be vaccinated:

➜ Ohioans, age 65 and up.

➜ Ohioans with severe congenital, developmental, or early-onset medical disorders that make them particularly vulnerable.

➜ Adults/employees in all schools that want to go back, or to remain, educating in person.

Vaccinations in Phase 1B are expected to begin the week of January 19th 2021.

Governor DeWine announced a tiered system for offering vaccinations to the estimated 2.2 million people who are eligible for the vaccine under this phase, beginning with those who are 80 or older. When a new age group begins, vaccinations may not be complete for the previous age group. It will take a number of weeks to distribute all of the vaccine given the limited doses available.

Proposed Schedule:

➜ The week of January 19th 2021: Ohioans 80 years of age and older.

➜ The week of January 25th 2021: Ohioans 75 years of age and older; those with severe congenital or developmental disorders.

➜ The week of February 1st 2021: Ohioans 70 years of age and older; employees of K-12 schools that wish to remain or return to in-person or hybrid models.

➜ The week of Feb. 8th 2021: Ohioans 65 years of age and older.

In Cuyahoga County, to sign up to receive a notification when a clinic and vaccination is available please use this web address:

You will receive two notifications when clinics open up:

➜ A voicemail message telling you to check your email for a link to register.

➜ An email message that has a link that allows you to register for the next open clinic.

➜ After you click on the link to register, you will receive a second email message that will have the date and time of your appointment.

Note: There is no official word yet about where schedule 1B vaccinations will take place.

Stay well!

Update #1 Released: 1/8/2021   

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As we have announced previously this is what we currently know about the availability and planned distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. We will keep you updated as we learn more.

Governor Mike DeWine unveiled yesterday the current planned timeline for when the first groups can begin to receive a vaccination and setting dates on when certain individuals can receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The state's first phase of the vaccine rollout is currently underway. Health care providers, nursing home staff and residents, EMS responders and individuals with intellectual disabilities are in this group that have begun receiving the vaccine.

Next in line: A sliding roll out for those over the age of 65, school staff, and individuals with severe inherited or developmental disorders (like sickle cell anemia or Down syndrome). When a new age range opens, that doesn't mean that vaccinations should and/or will be complete for the previous age range. It will take several weeks to distribute all of the vaccine in a group given the limited doses available.

It will hopefully be announced, in the coming days, how individuals will be able to receive their vaccinations. Vaccine availability for "under 65" was not announced.

There were reported 10,251 new COVID-19 cases in the state yesterday, bringing the total number of cases to 753,068. This is the roll-out schedule Governor DeWine announced yesterday:

January 19th 2021

Beginning January 19th 2021, vaccinations will be available to those who are 80 years of age and older, outside of long-term care, (constituting up to 420,000 people).

Those receiving vaccines will receive them from physicians, local health departments, hospitals, federally-qualified health centers, in-home health service providers as well as some retail pharmacies.

The Department of Health has approximately 1,700 providers already registered to distribute vaccinations and will add more. On Tuesday next week, those who have been selected to deliver the next wave of vaccine will be notified and will receive information about their allocation.

Some providers may require appointments, some may hold drive-up clinics, or take walk-ins, but it is expected that every provider will clearly state how they will administer vaccinations to eligible individuals.

January 25th 2021

On January 25th 2021 it is anticipated that vaccinations will open up to those 75 years old and older.

February 1st 2021

On February 1st 2021, the vaccination process will open to people 70 and older. Also on February 1st 2021, the state will begin to vaccinate school personnel. The governor said the state will be asking schools to send state officials the number of staff they believe will choose to take the vaccination and indicate if they are already working with partners for vaccine administration.

February 8th 2021

On February 8th 2021, the vaccinations will be available to those 65 and older. Also on this date, vaccinations will be available to those with severe congenital, developmental, or early-onset medical disorders.

To date, the COVID-19 vaccine has been started in 221,302 people in Ohio, which is 1.89% of the state's population. The vaccine has been started in 22,081 people in the last 24 hours. The 2 dose vaccine has yet to be completed in any Ohio residents, as the second dose must be administered three or four weeks after the first dose.

This is exciting and encouraging news, but is subject to change, as the dates have already been extended as distribution of vaccine and administering it is slower than necessary.

In the meanwhile, the disease continues to escalate in its spread. The number of new cases today is higher than the rolling 21-day average of daily cases, which is 7,471. There were 921 new cases reported in Cuyahoga County today. There have now been 9,462 coronavirus-related deaths across the state; 94 new deaths were reported today, higher than the 21-day average of 75. The median age of patients is 43 with the age range for infected patients from younger than 1 year old to 111 years old.

Many Ohioans, particularly those under 65), are still months from vaccine availability. Everyone, even those who have been vaccinated, should please continue to engage safe practices until we get through this. If you have managed to avoid illness so far, now is not the time to let your guard down or risk exposing those you love. Mask, maintain your distances, don't congregate and keep washing those hands.

Thank you, stay safe and healthy!
