COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Ohio has started distributing safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines statewide to those who choose to be vaccinated. Right now the amount of vaccine available is very limited. We ask your patience as we continue to make vaccine available as soon as it is provided to us by the State of Ohio. 

There is a required two dose series to complete the vaccination. You must be willing to complete the vaccination series to get the full protection from the vaccine. 

You can get more detailed information about the vaccine and vaccination distribution process from the Centers for Disease Control. CDC Vaccine Information

Canton City Public Health is receiving weekly allotments of the vaccine and we are getting these to the community as quickly as possible. For now, this means working with those eligible for Phase 1A and Phase 1B vaccinations.

PHASE 1A

Phase 1A category generally includes, Medical personnel, Nursing homes, EMS Firefighters, etc.  For a detailed list Ohio Phase 1A Guidance click here.

If you are in Phase 1A and you would like to be contacted about scheduling vaccinations, please fill out the Phase 1A Pre-Registration Form and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.

PHASE 1B

The Phase 1B category includes persons 75 years of age and older. Ohio has begun allowing vaccination of this group starting on January 25, 2021.   Canton City Public Health will be scheduling COVID vaccination clinics for Phase 1B as the vaccine becomes available. For a detailed list of Phase 1B Ohio Phase 1B Guidance click here.

If you are a resident of the City of Canton AND are 75 years or older, please complete the Phase 1B Pre-Registration form to be placed on a waiting list for vaccination. You will be contacted to schedule an appointment for vaccination when we have vaccines available. Note that pre-registration does not guarantee that we will have vaccine available. We will only contact you for an appointment if we have vaccine.

If you are unable to use the online registration form, you may call 330-451-6774 to be placed on the pre-registration list for your vaccination.
