SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) — The Summit County Public Health department is cancelling a vaccine clinic at the fairgrounds due to decreased demand.

The clinic scheduled for Tuesday April 27 from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the Summit County Fairgrounds is cancelled while the public health department can rethink ways to reach people who have not been vaccinated, according to Donna Skoda, Health Commissioner, SCPH.

“It still remains a priority for us to vaccinate as many individuals as possible,” Skoda said. “We have to think of new and innovative ways to reach individuals who have not been vaccinated so we are shifting some of our resources to more targeted initiatives.”

The health department says that someone who has a scheduled appointment for
Tuesday’s clinic at the fairgrounds will be contacted to reschedule at one of their other clinics
at Summit County Public Health at 1867 West Market Street in Akron.
