Licking County resumes vaccine registration after more doses become available

Local News

Vaccine registrations are closed in Licking County.

NEWARK, Ohio (WCMH) — The Licking County Health District has resumed scheduling appointments on its COVID-19 vaccine hotline.

LCHD said additional vaccines were allotted for individuals 70 and up. The district is adding 200 clinic appointments for a drive-thru vaccination clinic Thursday.

Appointment registrations weren’t being scheduled at one point due to an uncertain supply of vaccine doses.

“The number of vaccine allocated to LCHD each week varies, so appointments can only be scheduled as supply allows,” said the health department on a social media post.

Doses are targeted to specific groups according to Ohio’s release guidelines. The health district anticipates that vaccines will be available to everyone who wants it once supplies increase.
