COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is trying to persuade residents to get vaccinated as the state rushes to administer around 200,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that is set to expire in two weeks. The Republican governor, like his counterparts across the country, is facing a roadblock in vaccination rates as health officials say the majority of individuals who wanted the vaccine have already received it and the rest are either vaccine-hesitant or unwilling to receive it. The state is also working against the clock to push the one-shot Johnson&Johnson to residents before the doses are set to expire on June 23.
