KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – Kettering Health Network said Thursday it is opening clinics and partnering with local health departments to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is widely available for those 80 years of age or older beginning January 19.

“Kettering Health Network’s goal is to provide easy access to the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Brenda Kuhn, chief clinical officer for Kettering Health Network. “This vaccine brings hope of a return to normalcy, and we are grateful for the support of state and local partners as we take this next step and continue responding to the needs of our community.”

As Kettering Health Network receives vaccines, it remains focused on distributing the vaccine as quickly as possible. Quantities are announced on a weekly basis, and the network will continue adapting its plans based on the doses available to ensure local residents can receive the vaccine in the most efficient way.
