Working though vaccinations Phase 1a
The Summit County Department of Public Health has started administering the COVID-19 vaccine to those who are included in the Phase 1a group. Specific to people served, Phase 1a includes individuals served who live in congregate sites and the staff that are working in those homes. Vaccinations for those eligible and interested are occurring this week.
Planning for Phase 1b – Feedback Needed
The State of Ohio has started releasing some information regarding who will be eligible in Phase 1b. Once this information is finalized, Summit DD will be reaching out to all those who are eligible and also meeting with the Summit County Department of Public Health to plan vaccine clinic days for this next phase.
To help Summit DD plan for the next phases of vaccine distribution we are asking all providers to complete this vaccine survey to identify the number of staff, (not eligible in Phase 1a – day service, NMT, job coaches, etc.) who are interested in receiving the vaccine when eligible.
Independent providers, you can simply state yes or no to whether or not you are interested in receiving the vaccine when eligible.
Surveys must be completed by the end of business on Wednesday January 13th.
We appreciate your time in completing this very short survey as this information is critical as we continue planning efforts with the Summit County Department of Public health.
