It has been some time since we have checked in on COVID-19 vaccination rates for Richland Countians.

As with statistics across the state, numbers have continued to rise slowly as a result of incentives, such as the “vax a million” lottery, as well as programs designed to provide easy transportation to vaccination locations.

On Wednesday, the Ohio Department of Health reported that some 5,229,367 Ohioans have had at least one dose of a vaccine. That number represents 44.74% of the population.

Currently, over 25,000 residents of Ohio are getting a vaccine daily.

4,581,171 of those individuals have completed their vaccine regimen or one or two shots, depending on the vaccine given. That is 39.19% of the population.

Richland County’s  initial vaccination rate is currently 32.91%, over 11 percentage points behind Ohio as a whole. Completed vaccinations are now nearing 30%.

Richland’s numbers place it in the middle of the pack in north central Ohio. Neighboring counties had the following percentages (first number are those who have started, and second number those who have finished vaccinations):

  • Ashland 31.59, 26.10
  • Crawford 34.56, 31.25
  • Huron 35.80, 31.22
  • Knox 32.78, 30.10
  • Morrow 31.87, 28.64
