Community COVID-19 Vaccinations

COVID-19 vaccines are here. Supply is limited, and we are working as quickly as possible to vaccinate patients, while following the guidelines setup by the Ohio Department of Health. Appointments are required for vaccinations and criteria must be met. There are no out-of-pocket costs, but insurance will be billed. If the patient does not have insurance, they still qualify for the vaccine with no out-of-pocket cost.

Patient Criteria

Where are vaccines available for the community the week of January 18?

Kettering Health Network is opening clinics and partnering with local health departments to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is widely available for the communities it serves.

Quantities are announced on a weekly basis, and the network will continue adapting its plans based on the doses available to ensure local residents can receive the vaccine in the most efficient way.

To provide the most efficient distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, Kettering Health Network’s strategy is individualized on a county basis, determined by the doses allocated for each.
