Ohio began distribution of safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines statewide to those who choose to be vaccinated. Due to limited supply of the vaccines, distribution to Ohioans will be done through phases. There are currently three COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These vaccines are manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine consist of two doses, each shot administered three weeks apart. The Moderna vaccine is two doses with each shot given one month apart. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is only one dose.
We recommend members and dependents to get the COVID-19 vaccine once it is available to them. The cost of the COVID-19 vaccine is covered 100% by the OLDC-OCA Insurance Fund for all eligible members and dependents.
