HURON COUNTY COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAM
Huron County Public Health (HCPH) is working to distribute safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines county-wide to those who choose to be vaccinated.
This page is intended to provide residents with information about the vaccine, our distribution plan, and details about when, where, and how COVID-19 vaccines will be available locally.
HURON COUNTY VACCINE UPDATES
IMPORTANT UPDATE: At this time, eligible individuals in Phases 1B, 1C, and Phase 2 can schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at HCPH by calling 419-668-1652 ext.241, 263, 244, or 257. HCPH asks for continued patience as we expect a surge in interest as a new age group of individuals becomes eligible and the new vaccine type comes online.
Huron County has been receiving a very limited quantity of vaccines from the Ohio Department of Health. We are glad there is such demand from our area to get the vaccine; however, we ask for your patience until a wider supply of vaccine is available.
