Blanchard Valley Health System (BVHS) in collaboration with Hancock Public Health (HPH) and the University of Findlay will be offering a mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic for the community on Saturday, March 13 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the University of Findlay Koehler Center, North Main Street, Findlay. Approximately 2000 doses of the vaccine will be available.
This vaccine clinic will be open to individuals who are 50 years of age and older, along with individuals with medical conditions and occupations outlined by the State of Ohio’s Phase 1B and 1C vaccination program.
“This is an exceptional opportunity to protect our community and get our family, friends and neighbors vaccinated,” explained Roxanne Williams, MSN, director of corporate quality, associate and patient safety at BVHS. “Additionally, this is also the perfect example of how the recently-established partnership with the University of Findlay goes beyond just the academic focus.”
Registration will open on Monday, March 8. Please call HPH at 419.424.7105 and select option 1 for COVID-19 vaccine information and scheduling. Individuals will be screened and given an appointment time. A caregiver or loved one may make an appointment on behalf of a patient.
“By working together, we will get the vaccine distributed to our community,” added Karim Baroudi, MPH, health commissioner. “Through this mass vaccination clinic, we hope to be able to get more shots in arms. We are extremely grateful to have such extraordinary partners as BVHS and the University of Findlay.”
