Daily vaccination rate increasing in Ohio

More than 1.1 million Ohioans have begun the two-shot vaccination process against COVID-19, just 11 months after the state health department first detected the new coronavirus in Ohio (Source: “Vaccinations speed up in Ohio as the coronavirus recedes,” Ohio Capital Journal, Feb. 11).

An analysis of state data shows the seven-day moving average of the number of Ohioans starting the vaccination process has slowly and steadily risen between the first shots Dec. 14 and early February.

About 30,000 state residents per day are starting the process, according to a seven-day moving average.

State health officials expect this figure to rise as they iron out kinks in a complex and temperature-sensitive supply chain, the two vaccines on the market ramp up production, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine presumably enters the market in the coming weeks.
