COVID-19 Vaccine

In conjunction with Ohio’s statewide efforts to distribute COVID-19 vaccines to Ohioans in Phase 1B starting the week of January 18, Hancock Public Health (HPH), Blanchard Valley Health System (BVHS), 50 North, and the Hancock County Emergency Management Agency are partnering to lead the vaccination efforts. Our goals for this phase of vaccinations are to save the lives of the most vulnerable citizens and get kids back in school. 

Phase 1A

 -  health Care Workers
 -  EMS responders
 -  staff and residents at long-term care facilities

Phase 1B

 -  people age 65 and older
 -  people living with severe congenital, developmental, or early-onset medical conditions
 -  adults who work in schools (K-12) 

Governor DeWine announced a tiered system, which HPH will be following, for offering vaccinations to people who are eligible for the vaccine under phase 1B, beginning with those 80 or older. These phases are as follows: 

  • Week of Jan. 18: Ohioans 80 years of age and older.
  • Week of Jan. 25: Ohioans 75 years of age and older; those with severe congenital or developmental disorders.
  • Week of Feb. 1: Ohioans 70 years of age and older; employees of K-12 schools that wish to remain or return to in-person or hybrid models.
  • Week of Feb. 8: Ohioans 65 years of age and older.
  • Week of Feb. 15, 2021: Ohioans with severe congenital, developmental, or early-onset, and inherited conditions including cerebral palsy; spina bifida; severe congenital heart disease requiring hospitalization within the past year; severe type 1 diabetes requiring hospitalization within the past year; inherited metabolic disorders including phenylketonuria; severe neurological disorders including epilepsy, hydrocephaly, and microcephaly; severe genetic disorders including Down syndrome, fragile X syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Turner syndrome, and muscular dystrophy; severe lung disease, including asthma requiring hospitalization within the past year, and cystic fibrosis; sickle cell anemia; and alpha and beta thalassemia; and solid organ transplant patients. 

Please note: Information is still forthcoming regarding those who have a qualifying congenital, early-onset, or inherited condition (without a developmental or intellectual disability) who will begin being vaccinated on Feb. 15. 

Walk-in appointments are not available, and vaccines will be administered by appointment only.

How Do I Pre-Register for the COVID-19 Vaccine

Anyone in Tier 1B that has not pre-registered and is interested in receiving a vaccine must pre-register in advance by visiting the link below:


COVID Vaccine Pre-registration


Citizens in phase 1B without online access may also call 50 North at 419-423-8496 or HPH at 419-424-7105 to be registered by phone. 

Due to low supply of COVID-19 vaccine we are currently contacting individuals age 70+ to schedule appointments.

If you have pre-registered with HPH, you will be contacted to schedule your vaccination as appointments become available. We ask the public to refrain from calling to check on their status so that we may focus the time of our call center staff on registering citizens for vaccination.



If you are over 65 years old you can also contact the following locations for COVID vaccine availability.

Kroger: or by calling 866-211-5320.

CVS: or by calling 1-800-746-7287


Rite Aid :

While we understand many are eager to receive the vaccine, patience will be necessary while demand for the vaccine remains higher than the available supply. In the meantime, we must continue using all the tools available to help prevent the spread of the virus until a substantial number of Ohioans can be vaccinated. While vaccination will protect you from getting ill from COVID-19, not enough is yet known about whether or not you can still carry and spread the virus to others. HPH continues to ask that you wash/ sanitize your hands frequently, continue to practice social distancing, and wear a mask when around others.
