Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on Friday outlined a multi-tiered vaccination plan for Ohioans, starting with nursing home staff and residents and others in congregate care facilities.

Nearly 300,000 doses of the yet-to-be approved Pfizer vaccine are expected to arrive in the state by mid-December. A batch from Moderna will follow.

The governor hinted that more health orders may be coming even as his fellow Republicans in the Ohio General Assembly plot override DeWine’s vetoes of limits on his power in that regard.

Today on our Weekly Reporter Roundtable, we take a look at who gets a vaccine and when, and the plot thickens in the HB6 scandal.

Guests:

  • Karen Kasler, bureau chief the Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau
  • Jeremy Pelzer, reporter, cleveland.com
  • Julie Carr Smyth, statehouse correspondent, The Associated Press
