Working with the Ohio Department of Aging Regional Rapid Response Assistance Program, Black and White Transportation, the Ohio National Guard and the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, the clinic helped more than 300 older residents of 13 different facilities begin the process of getting vaccinated.

Individuals interested in scheduling an appointment to get vaccinated are encouraged to be patient when calling the Office at 419-382-0624, or to visit lucascountyhealth.com.
