Governor, First Lady Receive 2nd COVID-19 Vaccine Shot< < Back to
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.
This morning, @FranDeWine and I received our second doses of the #COVID19 vaccine from Dr. Kevin Sharrett at Kettering Health Network’s Jamestown office in Greene County. Anyone age 65+ is eligible for the vaccine in Ohio. Find a nearby provider: https://t.co/hqPtIO0reC pic.twitter.com/HnWkOLoMql
