COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The office of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine says the governor and first lady Fran DeWine have received the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

The Republican governor and his wife were eligible because both are older than 70.

DeWine has said he would not cut in line for the shots but would wait his turn.

Dr. Kevin Sharrett administered the Pfizer vaccines Tuesday to the DeWines at his southwestern Ohio clinic.

The state Department of Health says nearly 1.5 million people have received at least the first coronavirus vaccine as of Tuesday. That is about 13% of the population.
