Signing up for a COVID-19 vaccine in Ohio frequently takes no small amount of luck and persistence.

A patchwork system of vaccine providers can present a frustrating hurdle, especially for older adults and people with limited phone or internet access.

Today on Wellness Wednesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we take a look at navigating Ohio’s vaccine signup system.

Guests:

  • Larry Popkin, PhD, nutrition professor, University of North Carolina
  • Tamara James, Director of Strategic Initiatives with the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging
  • Gretchen Reynolds, columnist for the New York Times Well Blog
