Weather Delays Some COVID Vaccine Shipments

Roger Ingles

Some shot clinics were closed Tuesday, but not just because of bad weather in Ohio. Gov. Mike DeWine says the weather has delayed some shipments of COVID vaccines from getting to shot clinics throughout the state on time. 

DeWine says his office has been notified that the bad weather plaguing much of the country in the past couple of days is causing shipping delays. But he says there’s no reason to worry. 

“This vaccine is coming here. It may be a day late but it is coming," DeWine says.

DeWine says clinics might have to postpone some shots that were scheduled. So anyone who had a vaccine scheduled this week will be able to get it, but he's advising people with appointments to check with their providers.
