Gov. Mike DeWine announced Tuesday that vaccines will be expanded to Ohioans ages 75 and older, as well as people with an intellectual or developmental disability who also have a congenital, developmental or early-onset medical condition next week.
Among those medical conditions are severe lung disease, severe type 1 diabetes, sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and more.
Those residents will be contacted by their local developmental disabilities board to coordinate the vaccination process.
