More than 5.3 million Ohioans have received at least one vaccine, ODH said, making up 45.9% of all residents and 40.5% of all adults in the state. Of those, 4.7 million are fully vaccinated.
In the release, Gov. Mike DeWine said hitting this milestone showed that vaccinations were working, but added “that doesn’t mean we can let our foot off the gas.”
He urged unvaccinated people to get the vaccine, and both he and ODH urged unvaccinated people to continue to wear masks in public.
