The Union County Health Department offers vaccination clinics each week in accordance with the state of Ohio’s current eligibility requirements. The clinics are by appointment only. An appointment scheduler opens up late in the week for next week’s clinics. We do not keep a pre-registered list of persons interested in vaccination.
COVID-19 vaccination clinics provided by the Union County Health Department are a drive thru service at the Union County Fairgrounds. Once you have your appointment, you come to the Union County Fairgrounds at your date and time. The drive thru process takes about 30 minutes including the recommended 15 min post vaccination waiting period.

How to Make Your COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment in Union County, Ohio?
- Union County Health Department: The Union County Health Department receives a limited amount of vaccine each week. We open up an online appointment scheduler at www.uchdclinic.org once a week based on next week’s vaccine allocation. This scheduler typically opens late in the week for clinics that are held the next week. We are not “pre-registering” individuals for future clinics. Vaccine arrives weekly and quantities are unknown so we can only book appointments one week at a time. You must be in one of Ohio’s eligible groups in order to book your appointment. If you do not have computer access to book an appointment, you can call the Union County Health Department at (937) 642-2053 or Union County Senior Services on the day the scheduler opens up (937) 644-1010 to get assistance. You can also call the Marysville Public Library, Northern Union County Public Library, or check with your local church – many of which are helping people to register. If you are age 60 or older and need transportation assistance to get to your vaccination appointment, please let the Union County Health Department know or call Union County Senior Services once you have an appointment at (937) 644-1010 select option 5.
