2 pop-up coronavirus mass vaccination clinics opening 50,000 doses in Columbus, Cincinnati

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The state is opening pop-up vaccination clinics for eligible Ohioans in Cincinnati and Columbus next week, Governor Mike DeWine’s office said Wednesday.

Both clinics offer Pfizer recordings. People who receive their first dose at the pop-up location are guaranteed their second dose at the same location approximately three weeks later. You will receive details on how to register for an appointment in the coming days.

The DeWine office said the clinics will have 50,000 doses redistributed from unused long-term care vaccines originally required by the federal government to hold.

Ohio has already administered nearly 160,000 newly assigned doses from the program, according to DeWine’s office.
