Gahanna, Mifflin Township residents did their part to end the pandemic last Friday by stopping by the COVID-19 clinic to get vaccinated. Township trustees Lynn Stewart, Dick Angelou and Kevin Cavener were on hand to greet residents while Mifflin Township Community Paramedic Kenny King administered vaccines.
Earlier this year, Mifflin Township was given the green light by the state of Ohio to operate COVID-19 vaccine clinics, staffed by firefighters/paramedics from the Division of Fire, making the township one of the first area fire divisions to offer a clinic.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Franklin County has had more than 124,000 cases and nearly 1,400 deaths from COVID-19. Over the past several months, Mifflin Township Community Paramedic Kenny King, and other staff, participated in numerous vaccine clinics, assisting in vaccinating more than thousands of residents, as well as supplementing staff at area hospitals.
For upcoming clinic dates, follow Mifflin Township on FB, Twitter or Instagram @MifflinTwpOhio or NextDoor or check the website frequently.
