Hamilton Health Commissioner Kay Farrar is also urging residents to get vaccinated.
“The people having to go to the hospital because of COVID-19 are almost entirely unvaccinated,” Farrar said. “Getting vaccinated is an easy way to protect yourself and those around you from serious illness.”
In an effort to increase vaccinations before the school year starts, all three local health departments with partners at the Butler County Emergency Management Agency and the Fair Board are collaborating to host a large vaccine clinic on August 7 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Butler County Fairgrounds.
To pre-register for Aug. 7 visit gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov, enter your zip code and find clinics near you. Walk-ins are welcome.
“Vaccination remains the single best protection against COVID-19 infection in all its forms,” Middletown Health Commissioner Jackie Phillips-Carter said. “Current vaccines are showing good protection from the Delta variant.”
