COVID-19 VACCINATION INFORMATION

FCMH is one of four locations that will distribute safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines to person who wish to be vaccinated. Anyone age 65 and older is now elibible to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine. Below is the original schedule as issued by the Ohio Department of Health, however, per Governor DeWine, all willing participants in each age group must receive their vaccine before scheduling appointments for the next age group.

Please check back for details about when other age groups can schedule an appointment.
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.

Fast Facts:

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 Relief Fund.

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.
