The health department was allotted an additional doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to be administered on a first come, first served basis.
Please bring a photo ID, including proof of age and residency (WV Driver’s License). To help maintain social distancing, please come to your appointment at the time scheduled, you do not need to arrive early. When more vaccine arrives, or additional groups are identified for vaccination the department will provide more notification.
There will be limited supplies of COVID-19 vaccine at first, so the vaccine will be distributed in phases based on risk. Supply of COVID-19 vaccine will increase over time.
We are dedicated to ensuring that all residents of Ohio County and West Virginians have access to a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. The initial focus of West Virginia’s vaccine distribution is to take care of the most vulnerable in our state. Vaccines will be in limited supply at the beginning, so the first phase will be distributed to individuals in high-risk settings such as healthcare, first response, long-term care facilities, and education. This approach is imperative to preserve critical infrastructure, such as making sure our healthcare system can meet our state’s needs. We understand that there are questions regarding when the COVID-19 vaccine will be available, and we are urging patience for all those waiting. As we receive more vaccine supply and have vaccinated those outlined in the state’s plan for Phase 1, we will move forward with vaccinations for the general public. We appreciate your commitment to protecting West Virginia.
