SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio — On Wednesday, Summit County Public Health announced that it would cancel the mass vaccination clinic at the Summit County Fairgrounds on Tuesday, April 27, due to "decreased demand."
Individuals scheduled to receive a vaccine at the fairgrounds are being asked to reschedule their appointment at an existing COVID-19 vaccination clinic in the county.
“It still remains a priority for us to vaccinate as many individuals as possible. We have to think of new and innovative ways to reach individuals who have not been vaccinated so we are shifting some of our resources to more targeted initiatives” says Donna Skoda, health commissioner, SCPH.
The announcement comes as Ohio continues to see rising COVID-19 cases and a temporary pause on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Anyone looking to set up a new vaccination appointment can do so here. You can also call the COVID-19 hotline (330) 926-5795 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
