Vaccine Clinics

O’Neill Healthcare is excited to announce we’re hosting more vaccine clinics at our facilities! Through the state’s program, we’re able to host multiple clinics at each location. All new staff and residents have the opportunity to be vaccinated, plus, any staff or residents who chose not to get the vaccine back in December have the option again. O’Neill Healthcare plans to administer as many vaccines as possible, including, but not limited to, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine that is recommended by the CDC. Read more here.

All our facilities have joined any vaccine program created by the state or federal agencies. We remain committed to vaccinating all our residents and staff to protect them from COVID-19. To read more, see our statement on Governor Mike DeWine’s Vaccine Maintenance Program.
