Pediatric vaccine locations; extended clinic hours | Local News

The Williams County Health Department released a list of vaccine providers updated Friday with pediatric locations.

While people 12 years and older have eight locations where they can get vaccinated, only five of those currently offer the pediatric vaccine for children 5-11 years old.

They are: Williams County Health Department in Montpelier, Klinger Pharmacy in West Unity, Bryan Community Health Center, Walmart Pharmacy in Bryan, and Rite Aid Pharmacy in Bryan.

All those locations offer walk-in vaccinations or people can make an appointment.

Anyone over the age of 12 can also get vaccinated at Rings Pharmacy in Montpelier by appointment or walk-in, or by appointment at CVS or Walgreens pharmacies in Bryan.

This week, the provincial health department is also extending the opening hours of its COVID-19 vaccine clinic in an “effort to help the overburdened medical system and reduce the spread of COVID-19,” according to the department’s Community Talking Points release, which was released last week.

Monday and Wednesday the practice is open from 9.15 am to 5.30 pm. The Pfizer injection is available for people ages 5 and older, available for the first or second dose, and as a booster dose. Johnson & Johnson’s one-time vaccine is also available for people over the age of 18.

For the third week in a row, Williams County ranked #1 in the state based on per capita COVID cases.

In a two-week period, the county had 1,125.6 cases per 100,000 residents, just over twice the statewide number of 538.2 cases per 100,000.

Between November 23 and November 30, the province had 214 new cases, four hospitalizations and one new reported death.

Death reports have been delayed due to changes to the Ohio Department of Health’s reporting system.

According to separate data from the health department, the province has seen a total of 6,500 cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began and has had 307 new cases since Wednesday, Nov. 24. A total of 5,643 people are believed to have recovered from COVID-19.

99 deaths have been reported in the province so far.

As of Friday, 40.78% of the province’s population has been fully vaccinated.
