Canton City Public Health 
COVID-19 Vaccination Information 

Vaccination remains the key strategy for reducing the spread of COVID and preventing serious and life threatening illness. We strongly encourage everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated to do so as soon as possible. 

We are only offering Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccine at our clinics.

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

Update on Booster Doses of Vaccine

  • The Centers for Disease Control released recommendations for an additional COVID vaccine dose for those persons who may be moderately to severely immunocompromised. This is not a "booster" dose.  The recommendation for an additional dose of mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer only) is meant to help a person increase their immunity to COVID. Here is a link to the CDC recommendations for additional mRNA vaccines. We advise that you contact the provider of your initial COVID vaccine for more information on additional doses. Canton City Public Health is able to provide additional doses of Moderna vaccine at our clinic that is held on Thursday afternoons at Canton City Public Health. We ask that persons receiving an additional dose of Moderna vaccine at our clinic have a conversation with their health care team prior to getting their additional dose. No order is needed from a physician or care giver.

How to get a COVID Vaccine 

COVID vaccine is widely available in the community. Most pharmacies and other providers offer walk-in chances to get vaccinated. You may also make appointments at most providers.
