Where can I get a vaccine at a mobile clinic in northwest Ohio?

After the first day of a week-long Toledo Fire & Rescue Department mobile vaccine unit, more people are on their way to being fully vaccinated.

TOLEDO, Ohio – There’s a new push to vaccinate more people in the community.

The Vaccination Fire Truck is a partnership with the Toledo Fire and Rescue Department, V Project and Toledo-Lucas County Health Department announced in late April.

It works to get the COVID-19 shot straight to the community in a Johnson & Johnson vaccine-armed mobile TFRD unit.

“Really, really a positive result. We were hoping we could get a good turnout and so far it has been good. Nice and steady audience,” said TFRD Lt. Lolita Cooper.

From May 10-14, the vaccine unit will be placed in underserved areas or places with the lowest vaccination rates to make it easier for people in this community to access.

“Maybe they don’t have the means to get to websites, maybe they don’t have internet access so they can plan a website or test it online,” Cooper said. “So we’re trying to get the community or the population to mean that without it they wouldn’t be able to get the vaccine.”

Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot vaccine was used so residents didn’t have to worry about coming back for a second dose, which was appealing to those who received the shot today.

“We waited to confirm the type of vaccine we thought was my mom’s best. The Johnson & Johnson fit that bill,” said Lynn Kujawski, who brought her mom, Mary Lou Leonard, to get the shot.

Also appealing is the thought that vaccination means the possibility of doing things without a mask in the near future.

“I can’t wait to go shopping without a mask. Go to dinner, go to lunch and see my babies and grandchildren without fear,” Phyllis Williams said after getting her COVID-19 shot .

The dates and times of the mobile vaccine can be found below.
