LAKE COUNTY, Ohio — Lake County is now offering personal COVID-19 vaccine clinics for groups of 10 or more, and the medical professionals will come to you.
Lake County General Health District is offering the option to vaccinate groups of residents of Lake County against COVID-19 vaccine at a place of their choosing.
Qualified public health employees are now able to come to Lake County businesses, groups and organizations to administer COVID-19 vaccines to eligible individuals.
Representatives from the Lake County General Health District are asking people who have a group of at least 10 people who would like to be vaccinated to please call (440) 350-2188 for more information about scheduling a personal clinic.
This concept of closed-pod vaccine clinics was put in to effect on April 12.
Across the state, vaccine providers may now partner with other organizations, such as employers, labor unions and churches to hold closed-pod vaccination clinics with these organizations.
Governor Mike DeWine has encouraged employers and other groups looking to do so to contact their local health departments to help set up clinics, and vice versa.
"We think this will increase the percentage of those who choose to be vaccinated," DeWine previously explained.
As the state gets additional vaccine shipments, most allotments will be delivered to providers based on county population, but DeWine has noted that areas with great demand may get a surge of more doses, and areas with case spikes will see the deployment of more doses there as well.
For those in Lake County who aren't part of a group of at least 10, the Lake County General Health District website has the most up-to-date information about where people can get vaccinated against COVID-19 in that area.
