The state is now readying to distribute coronavirus vaccines to adult workers in those schools starting the week of Feb. 1, the governor said during a Tuesday briefing.

Gov. Mike DeWine said 96 percent of all of Ohio’s K-12 school districts have committed to return to in-person learning by March 1.

The state is now readying to distribute coronavirus vaccines to adult workers in those schools starting the week of Feb. 1, the governor said during a Tuesday briefing.

School districts are expected to work with their local Educational Service Centers to identify vaccine providers like local health agencies are partnering pharmacies, DeWine said.

This week, Ohioans aged 80 and older became eligible for the coronavirus vaccine. Next week, eligibility expands to include those aged 75 and older as well as younger adults with severe congenital or early-onset disorders.

DeWine said pharmacies partnering with Ohio to administer the vaccine in the state’s nursing homes are expected to have delivered the first round of shots to every facility in the state by the end of the day.
