COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Several local health groups have announced plans for how they will handle COVID-19 vaccinations on Tuesday in light of a winter storm warning.
Mount Carmel said it is rescheduling all of its Tuesday appointments at its Mount Carmel East clinic for the same times on Saturday. Patients will be contacted to confirm the details and to allow them to reschedule for the following week if they cannot attend Saturday.
Columbus Public Health said its drive-thru clinic at the Celeste Center will continue as scheduled from noon to 7 p.m. and will remain open to those who have appointments as long as Franklin County does not move to a Level 3 snow emergency.
Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center said appointments between 7 and 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center are being rescheduled for the same time on Wednesday.
OhioHealth said those with appointments scheduled for Tuesday will be contacted to have appointments rescheduled for Wednesday through Friday.
The Franklin County Public Health vaccination clinic Tuesday for individuals 75 and older to get their second dose has been canceled. Individuals who have appointments will be notified and allowed to reschedule for Wednesday or Thursday.
In Knox County, a drive-thru clinic Tuesday at Siemens/Cooper Progress Park has been canceled. The second-dose clinic will instead take place as a walk-in clinic from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Mount Vernon High School fieldhouse, with no appointment necessary.
A Tuesday clinic scheduled by the Clark County Combined Health District remains scheduled as planned, with the health district adding a make-up clinic this Friday, Feb. 19. The Friday clinic will accommodate those who have a scheduled appointment Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday who do not feel comfortable traveling due to the winter weather.
