ONU mobile vaccine clinic set to start serving area

The Ohio Northern University Healthwise Mobile Clinic is gearing up to start vaccinating people around the area.

The university will be serving six counties over the next 60 days, using the clinic as a vaccine site. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be offered and the clinic is expecting to receive around 2,200 doses per week.

Having a mobile clinic will help to offer the vaccine to people that may not be able to travel long distances to the nearest vaccination site.

“The ability of taking the vaccine clinic to where people are is going to really help them in terms of their access to that type of care,” said Dr. Steve Martin, dean of ONU Raabe College of Pharmacy. “Many of the clinic sites that we’re going to are in rural locations; we have an Amish community that we’re going to go visit, and they would not be able to travel leave in 10 to 15 miles to another clinic that might be by them. I think that really makes a big difference in terms of getting more people access to vaccines.”
