Nick McWilliams reporting – With Pfizer coronavirus vaccines currently being distributed across the state, the Ohio Department of Health reported higher numbers than expected.

After initial projections put second-wave doses around 120,000, later projections dropped the total to close to 70,000.

However, according to a recent release from ODH, the next allocation will bring 89,700 doses to the state, along with some 69,700 vaccines from Moderna near the end of the week.

Currently, the second phase of distribution is rolling, with vaccines focused on assisted living facilities and retirement communities.
