(WDTN) – A tool to find out where you can get your COVID-19 vaccine is now online. Click here to check eligibility and sign up for a vaccine appointment.

Gov. Mike DeWine announced Tuesday morning that eligibility will open Friday for those 40 and older and as well as those with cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD, heart disease and obesity.

On March 29, eligibility will open to those 16 and older. Public Health Dayton & Montgomery County opened registration for those 16 years of age or older on March 22.

These changes represent Phases 1E, 2C and 2D of Ohio’s vaccination program. Phase 1E includes 766,000 Ohioans, and Phase 2C includes 818,000. Last week, President Joe Biden set a goal of having the vaccine available to all adults by May 1, and a representative from DeWine’s office said the state was in line to meet that deadline.

The searchable directory on Ohio’s Vaccine Provider Locations website allows Ohioans to search by county and ZIP code to find a provider in their area.
