Cuyahoga County now offering registration to residents wanting to receive the COVID-19 vaccine

On Thursday, Governor DeWine also unveiled the latest plans for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in the coming weeks.

CUYAHOGA COUNTY, Ohio — Cuyahoga County has launched a new tool to help residents register for the coronavirus vaccine in an easier fashion, once the time comes. 

The website, which can be found here, allows citizens to register to receive the vaccine once a phase of the rollout that includes that individual has begun.

  • Eligibility in a phased group of the vaccine rollout
  • Present identification from their place of employment and a valid form of state-issued identification

Currently, the state is still in Phase 1A of the vaccine distribution, but on Thursday afternoon, Governor Mike DeWine announced that the second phase would soon begin. 

Ohioans 80 years of age and older will have access to the coronavirus vaccine on January 19. On January 25, individuals 75 years and older will have access to the vaccine, and so on.

Governor DeWine also sat down with 3News' Maureen Kyle earlier this week to discuss vaccine distribution for Ohio's school workers, which will begin on February 1. The Ohio lawmaker said that the intention to get children back in school is at the top of his list for the New Year, and that students suffer drastically from not being in the classroom.
