OHIO, USA — Starting today, the Ohio Department of Health will be including vaccination data for children ages 0-4 on its COVID-19 Vaccination Dashboard and COVID-19 Vaccination Rate by Key Age Groups, according to ODH Director Bruce Vanderhoff.

On June 18, the CDC and U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Pfizer vaccine for children ages six months through four years old, which is administered in a three-dose series, and the Moderna vaccine for children ages six months through five years, which is administered in a two-dose series.
