Youth ages 6 months to 17 years may receive COVID vaccinations by appointment Mondays and Fridays. Moderna booster doses are available to youth ages six and older. To schedule, call 419-294-3852.

There are currently 15* active cases of COVID-19 in Wyandot County. There are no patients currently hospitalized with COVID-19. Per the Ohio Department of Health, the cumulative case count since March 2020 is 6,243. This includes 4,491 lab-confirmed cases and 1,752 probable cases. Of the reported individuals, there have been 108 deaths. ODH updates these numbers weekly on Thursdays. A total of 6,140* individuals have been released from isolation.

Note: Starting today these posts will not include vaccination status of the current active cases and hospitalizations. To date, these posts have indicated vaccinated patients as those who received the initial dose or doses of the COVID-19 vaccine as far back as 2020 and not vaccinated cases as those who have not received any doses or did not complete the initial series of the COVID vaccine. This change in reporting is occurring due to the complexity of everchanging vaccination status posed by booster doses.

Wyandot County’s community level per the CDC is low (green). Prevention recommendations include staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations and getting tested for COVID if symptoms are present. People at high risk for severe illness should speak to a healthcare provider about additional precautions.
