LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – Columbiana County health officials provided an update Thursday on how they are going to handle COVID -19 vaccinations in the county.

The plan involves distribution of the vaccine to groups in Phase 1B, which includes those 80 years old or older. Transitioning into Phase 1B will be gradual, focusing on our most vulnerable population first, do the limited doses of vaccine available in the county and the large population in phase 1B.

Vaccines will be offered beginning the week of Jan. 19.

Additional segments of the phase 1B population will be notified depending on vaccine availability in the coming weeks.

You may be asked to present a copy of your ID, insurance or Medicare B card when attending a vaccination clinic, however, the vaccine is free.

An administration fee may be charged and submitted to insurance companies, but there is no co-pay, according to Columbiana County health officials. The vaccine is free.

There will be 13 locations across the county where the vaccine will be administered.

You must be able to to prove your age, and appointments are mandatory as 12 of the locations.

The one location where an appointment is not necessary is at the Columbiana County Fairgrounds, where a new building was constructed for vaccine distribution.

“We are concerned for some of the population as we begin to vaccinate that may not have internet accessibility or capability to make those reservations, so this will an open clinic,” said Columbiana County Health Commissioner Wesley Vins,

The building was constructed in just one month. It can accommodate 12 cars, six on each side. Drivers will enter the main entrance of the fairgrounds, drive behind the grandstand, and fill out paperwork in their vehicles.

“We want everyone ready to expose their upper arm because we won’t have changing facilities available. We also won’t’ have a bathroom available at that time,” said Laura Fauss, public information officer for the Columbiana County General Health District.

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine will be available.
