How You Can Help

You can help Ohio fight COVID-19

How to Help


You can enroll in the Medical Reserve Corps and take part in the effort to protect Ohioans. You may be qualified to join the force administering COVID-19 vaccine throughout your community. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is seeking health care professionals to help. Click here for more info and how you can enroll today.  

Active and inactive licensees can register to be a provider of the vaccine. ​Ohio recognizes the value of retired medical personnel for their wealth of knowledge and experience. Senate Bill 310 legislation allows any physician, podiatrist, physician assistant or respiratory care professional with an expired license to assist in administering vaccinations in Ohio until May 1, 2021. The practitioner must have previously held a license with the State Medical Board of Ohio (SMBO) in the last five years. Those practitioners who the State Medical Board had revoked or suspended, or who had surrendered their license to avoid disciplinary or other adverse action, are disqualified from utilizing this provision to practice temporarily in Ohio.
