MVHC to distribute COVID vaccine

| January 15, 2021


MVHC has been selected as a distribution partner for the COVID vaccine. MVHC will distribute the vaccine in partnership with the local health departments in Muskingum, Guernsey, Morgan, and Coshocton counties.

MVHC will observe the distribution plan constructed by the OHIO Department of Health for Group 1B, beginning the week of Jan. 19.  It is important for patients to understand how the process for vaccination will work, the best possible options to seek the vaccine, and how to gain access to information regarding the vaccine and its effects.

Designated MVHC sites in each county will be utilized for vaccinating patients. Patients can call MVHC at 1-888-454-5157 to schedule an appointment for the vaccine. All patients scheduled to receive the vaccine will receive updates including reminders for when the second dose needs to be administered.

MVHC is committed to being transparent to the public throughout this process to ensure the public is vaccinated efficiently. For the week of January 18th, the Ohio Department of Health has allocated approximately 700 does to MVHC for the four-county region. MVHC is committed to begin vaccinating patients within 24 hours of receipt of the vaccine and having all the vaccine administered within seven days or less. Each week, MVHC will communicate to the public the number of vaccines we will being receiving by county.

COVID-19 vaccines allocated to MVHC are for any community member of the county in which the vaccine is shipped to by the Ohio Department of Health.
