CINCINNATI — Starting Monday, Ohioans over the age of 65 can now sign up to get their COVID-19 vaccine.
Since the demand for the vaccine outweighs Ohio's supply, the state has focused on vaccinating those in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, frontline healthcare workers, people with pre-existing health conditions and elementary and high school teachers.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 1.3 million vaccine doses have been administered across Ohio as of Monday.
The next age-range vaccine expansion isn't happening any time soon, but on Feb. 15, people who have any of the congenital or early-onset conditions listed here under Phase 1B become eligible to receive the vaccine.
After that, Gov. Mike DeWine will announce when others will be eligible for the vaccine.
