Ready to return to normal? Get the facts, then get vaccinated!
As of this week, only 38 percent of Ohioans had received at least one COVID-19 vaccination shot, despite plenty of supply. Even though the science makes it clear that the vaccine is safe and effective, and things will not return to normal until we achieve herd immunity (estimated to be when about 80 percent of us are vaccinated), there is widespread vaccine hesitancy. Much of this is attributable to misinformation. For those who have concerns about the vaccine or who may not be in a rush to get vaccinated, this Ohio Department of Health video may dispel some myths.
