Ohio County Stays Near Top in Vaccinations

Ohio County has not lost its touch when it comes to getting its residents vaccinated against COVID-19.

According to the latest statistics from the Department of Health and Human Resources website, Ohio County is the fourth most effective county in West Virginia in terms of vaccinations. The county has administered 496 vaccine doses per 1,000 residents.

Only Kanawha (523 per 1,000), Tucker (511 per 1,000) and Hancock (497 per 1,000) counties are ahead of Ohio on the list. Comparatively, Brooke County has administered 376 doses per 1,000 residents and Marshall County has administered 364 doses per 1,000 residents.

Ohio County will get back to the normal vaccination process starting Tuesday.

After taking off today for Memorial Day, the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department will hold vaccination clinics on Wednesday and Friday at the Wheeling office, while continuing to offer clinics Tuesday and Thursday at The Highlands location.

Registered residents and walk-ins are accepted at The Highlands from 8 to 4 p.m., while walk-in clinics are accepted at the Health Department office from 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m.

Neither the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department nor the Marshall County Health Department had updated its websites with its latest totals as of 11:45 p.m. Sunday.

Hancock, Ohio and Marshall counties all were green on the latest DHHR COVID-19 alert map, putting all three in the map’s safest category. Brooke County was gold, two rungs below green on the color chart.
