TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - With COVID cases surging in Michigan, the need to get people vaccinated is taking on increased urgency.

So a lot of Michiganders are coming to Ohio to get protected.

Dr. Eric Zgodzinski of the Lucas County Health Department says up to 20% of the people at Lucas County COVID Vaccine Clinics are from Michigan.

The vaccines are allotted according to the population they serve and they come from the federal government so Ohio’s Governor Mike DeWine says he’s aware the Michigan residents are crossing the border and supports any way that people can get their vaccine.

So far, Lucas County still has plenty of vaccine slots available and is encouraging people to sign up for Friday’s Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccine clinic at the Lucas County Rec Center.
