Schools in northwest Ohio aren’t vaccinating the first week of February 1st. The vaccines are aimed at K-12 employees with the goal of getting back into personal classrooms.
Ohio’s K-12 schools, including public, private, and career-oriented institutions, learned on Friday when their teachers and staff required for face-to-face learning can receive COVID-19 vaccines.
On-site, Lucas County’s school vaccines are scheduled for the second week of the program, which will roll out February 8, and Wood County’s schools are in their third week, starting February 15. Hancock County’s schools will start receiving week 4 vaccines starting February 22nd.

Ohio governor Mike DeWine said his goal is for Ohio to return to either full time or in a hybrid in-person learning model by March 1. To do this, the governor identified teachers and school staff required for face-to-face learning as Phase 1B recipients as part of the Ohio COVID-19 vaccination program.
“Vaccines are incredibly rare and we just don’t have enough to vaccinate everyone at the same time. Therefore, as with other phases of vaccination, this will be an on-going process with the goal of delivering all first doses by March 1st, ”DeWine said. “This rollout schedule is a major logistical boost to ensure that the maximum number of people can be vaccinated in the shortest possible time.”
The state said its plan makes the process of vaccinating staff as simple as possible and is organized so that most K-12 workers in a county can be vaccinated within seven days of their assigned vaccination start date.
For the limited number of counties in which vaccinations take place over several weeks, the local managers make the logistical and scheduling decisions.
