When it is time to schedule your vaccine, call FCMH Central Registration
at 740.333.2743. Our caregivers will collect basic information, determine eligibility and
schedule your appointment. There are multiple locations in the community
that are providing the vaccine - here is some information to help make
scheduling as easy as possible regardless of where you get your vaccine.
Once you have scheduled an appointment at FCMH, feel free to download and
complete the following forms. If you are not able to complete these forms
in advance, they will be available at your vaccination appointment.
The Ohio Department of Health has determined a vaccine schedule for Phase
1b as follows. When your age group becomes eligible for the vaccine, please
call us to schedule your appointment.
1. Vaccine appointments are taken on a first-come, first-served basis
2. The vaccine is provided at no cost. Vaccine providers can bill a patient’s
insurance for a fee to administer the vaccine, but will not be able to
charge the patient. Providers can seek reimbursement for uninsured patients
from the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider
3. Once you make an appointment at a vaccination site, you are confirmed
to receive the vaccine.
Please do not register for the vaccine at multiple locations, this will only slow the distribution of the vaccine to others
4. After receiving your first dose, you
MUST receive your second dose from the same location. Due to the different
vaccines on the market, you may be asked to go to a different location
for your second dose, but that determination will be made by the site
that administered the first dose
5. Vaccine supply is extremely limited and will be dispensed according
to state guidelines as they become available. Eventually every Ohioan
will be able to receive a vaccine if they choose to do so.
