DeWine Urges Locals To Get Vaccinated
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine issued a simple reminder to area residents during Monday’s visit to Steubenville: Get your COVID-19 vaccination.
DeWine and his wife, Fran, stopped at the Jefferson County Health Department’s vaccination clinic inside the Fort Steuben Mall. The stop allowed the governor to see firsthand how the process of vaccinating Ohioans is progressing, and it also gave him the opportunity to thank officials and medical personal who are making sure those procedures are working smoothly.
In Jefferson County, according to health Commissioner Andrew Henry, about 30 percent of those eligible have received the vaccine.
DeWine said anyone who has concerns about getting the vaccine should consult with her or his doctor. In the meantime, it’s important to remember that we still need to follow safety protocols, which include practicing social distancing and wearing a mask.
And, if you have not yet, we can’t stress enough: get your vaccination.
It’s the ticket, DeWine explained, to getting out of the pandemic sooner .
