Continuing, Mr. Adams stated, “The list of vaccine providers continues to grow. We encourage anyone who is age eligible to take advantage of the opportunity to get vaccinated for COVID-19 whether that happens at Canton City Public Health for those 18 and older or through another provider.”

“Vaccination is the latest tool in the tool box as we continue to fight this virus.” added Adams. “We ask everyone, including those who are vaccinated, to continue to practice the now common prevention steps recommended since the beginning of the pandemic - wash your hands, wear a face covering and practice 6 feet physical distance.”
