COVID-19 Vaccine Information

With the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, it puts those that are not vaccinated at even greater risk. The Auglaize County COVID-19 vaccine providers ask residents to continue practicing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) safety recommendations of wearing a facial covering, social distancing, washing your hands often, staying home if you’re sick, and to get vaccinated in order to help reduce the spread of the virus and keep you, your family, and your friends safe.
