Ohio's COVID-19 Vaccination Program

Ohio is preparing to distribute safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines statewide to those who choose to be vaccinated. As COVID-19 vaccines are granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the state will begin to strategically and thoughtfully distribute the vaccines to Ohioans at the greatest risk in conjunction with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM). 

All of this information and more can be found on the Ohio Department of Health's website.

Student COVID-19 Guide

The safety of Cincinnati Public Schools' students and employees is of the utmost importance as we approach the start of the 2020-21 school year during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have created this Student COVID-19 Guide to highlight key elements of our plan to help ensure that our safety protocols are communicated, understood and followed.

Cincinnati Public Schools is working closely with the Cincinnati Health Department, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Interact for Health and other community partners to monitor the COVID-19 situation.
