List: Where Ohio's Lawmakers Stand On COVID-19 Vaccines

Mar 30, 2021

This list will be updated if/when information changes. It was last updated at 1 p.m. on April 1, 2021.

We asked individual Ohio lawmakers whether they have or plan to get COVID-19 vaccines.  Here's what they told us.

House and Senate Democratic Communications staff was able to answer the question on behalf of their members. Since Republican communications staff had not queried their members about it, we asked individual Republican lawmakers. Legislators have a variety of opinions on the subject. Here's a look at where each of them stand.
