CELINA-Today, the Ohio Department of Health is reporting 121 new cases per 100,000 residents over the past two weeks in Mercer County, down from the 138 cases per 100,000 residents reported last Thursday. As we continue to see a downward trend in cases, the MCHD encourages our residents to help sustain the progress that has been made by getting vaccinated against COVID-19, wearing a mask in public places, and limiting large gatherings.
A reminder to those who received their first dose of the Moderna vaccine on April 7- the MCHD will still hold our drive-thru clinic at the fairgrounds on May 7 to administer second doses to all of those people. Please refer to your vaccination card for your designated time unless you have been contacted by MCHD for another time.
The MCHD will be offering first dose COVID-19 vaccine clinics on Friday, May 14 and Friday, May 21. The clinics will be held at the Mercer County Health District and the Moderna vaccine will be administered. Please call 419-586-3251 extension 1462 to schedule an appointment.
