In March, we reached a number of milestones in our fight against COVID-19 as a state and as a country. Here in Ohio, we commemorated the one-year anniversary of the first cases and deaths from this virus,. Additionally, we surpassed 1 million total cases as a state.
While these milestones are a sobering reminder of just how difficult the past year has been for all of us, we’re starting to see hope for better days ahead.
The current administration has been able to shatter predictions for the number of vaccines administered, and now, every American is eligible to schedule a vaccine far sooner than even the most optimistic expectations.
As of March 29, all Ohioans ages 16 and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Getting a vaccine is quick, painless and one of the best tools we have to eradicating this virus.
In order to get our economy back on track, kids back in school, and our social lives vibrant again, we need everyone who can to sign up for an appointment to get vaccinated. Every one of the vaccines currently on the marker have been rigorously tested. They’re safe, effective and have the capacity to save countless lives.
And while getting the vaccine is our best line of defense to end this crisis, it is also critical that we continue to take precautions we’ve known to work all along, from washing our hands and maintaining distance to wearing a mask and limiting time indoors with those who have not been vaccinated yet.
We’re so close to turning the corner on this pandemic and have the tools in place to eradicate this virus, but it’s going to take all of us to get it done. And it begins by scheduling a vaccine appointment.
