With COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations surging amid the omicron variant, demand for vaccinations has risen in Lorain County. In response, Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) is expanding its vaccine clinic schedule.

“We are thrilled that people in Lorain County are continuing to get vaccinated against COVID-19,” says Mark Adams, RS, MPH, health commissioner at LCPH. “Adjusting our vaccine clinic schedule helps us keep as efficient as possible to continue preventing the spread of COVID-19, as well as other vaccine-preventable diseases.”
LCPH offers all brands and types of COVID-19 vaccine, including boosters. Ages five and up may get a COVID-19 vaccine, and ages 12 and up may get a booster (if it’s been more than five months since the second dose of Pfizer/Moderna OR 2 months since the single dose of Johnson & Johnson).
