WEEKLY COVID-19 TRENDS | Biden's 70 percent vaccine goal a pipedream in Ohio

Less than 60,000 Ohioans received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine last week. In late March, the state was administered eight times as many first doses.

COLUMBUS — Less than 60,000 Ohioans received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine last week. In late March, the state was administering eight times as many first doses. 

The vaccine uptake bump prompted by the chance to win $1 million is officially done, with the last Vax-a-Million winner to be announced Wednesday.

After this week’s winner is announced, “We’ll have some different incentives,” DeWine said. “We will also be talking in regard to longterm goals.”

As of June 16, 57.61 percent of Ohio adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine

If Ohio's weekly vaccine uptake rate remained consistent — and it hasn't yet shown signs of stabilizing — Ohio would reach 70 percent vaccinated in 20 weeks, or early November. 

Local health experts are getting the sense they've vaccinated all who are willing. 

“The people who haven’t gotten them yet are just not getting them,” observed Youngstown City Health Commissioner Erin Bishop last week.

June 13 to June 19 in numbers

  • 1,317 new confirmed cases were reported in Ohio; a total of 927,231 confirmed cases have been reported as of June 19;
  • There have been 304 new hospitalizations; a total of  60,169 people have been hospitalized as of June 19;
  • Between June 13 and June 19, 75 COVID-19 deaths were reported. The state reported 20,159 COVID-19 deaths in Ohio as of June 19;
  • Ohio is reporting 4,300 people have recovered from the virus between June 13 to June 19. The state reported 1,079,952 total recovered cases as of June 19;
  • As of June 19, 47.09 percent of the state population has received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. That's an increase of 57,766 first doses, down from 66,744 the week before.

Ohio Public Health Advisory System map

The Ohio Department of Health scrapped the Ohio Public Health Advisory System map May 27. The system launched in July 2020 and displayed COVID-19 spread and health care utilization in each county. 

Ohio's COVID-19 case incidence rate continues to fall. On Thursday, the rate was 26.8 new cases per 100,000 people for case onset dates of June 3 to June 16.
