Butler County COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions 

Number of vaccinations administered  by the Health District
As of 2/27/2021
Number of vaccinations administered by ALL partners in Butler County 
As of 3/4/2021

All vaccines are administered within 7 days of receipt, as required. 

Pre-registration of the COVID-19 Vaccine is currently on HOLD while we work through the list of over 29,500 individuals that have already pre-registered. 

The Ohio Department of Health is in the process of rolling out a Vaccine Management System (VMS) that will allow interested individuals to create their own patient portal, find a location within the county they live and schedule an appointment without having to pre-register or go on a wait list. The VMS also allows patients to submit health information and receive important reminders about their vaccination process. Stay tuned for more information about when it will go live. 

We have received a limited number of doses so far. We hope to see the numbers increase as manufacturers increase their capacity. The Ohio Department of Health determines what we get, based on what is allocated to them from the federal level-- and that depends on the manufacturers.
It will  take some time to vaccinate all who want to get vaccinated, please be patient as this process moves along!
Thank you for your patience!

If you have concerns or need advice about side effects or believe you are having an adverse reaction, please call the Vaccine Safety Hotline at 1-877-603-0170.  It is available 24/7 to answer your questions and provide advice. 

Ohio's goals are clear: To save lives and slow the spread of the virus
In the early vaccination phase, we focus on the most at-risk, as well as distributing the vaccines as quickly as we can to essential healthcare workers and personnel caring for COVID-19 patients. 

The vaccine has been shown to prevent COVID-19 and to decrease the severity of illness in people who catch the virus. Vaccinating a significant portion of Ohioans will help prevent serious hospitalizations and deaths, and return to normal.

Ohio COVID-19 Data can be explored using a web application found at: dataviz.miamioh.edu/COVID-OHIO/
This app downloads current COVID case, hospitalization, and death data from the Ohio Department of Health website. County comparisons can be requested and figures and tables of results downloaded. This app was developed by Miami University students in a data visualization class. Direct any app-related questions to statistics@miamioh.edu.

This allows the public and officials to identify trends. Case numbers may not be the same as the Ohio Department of Health due to delays in reporting.
