ONU’s HealthWise Mobile Clinic Playing Key Role in Fight Against COVID-19

Posted on June 18, 2021

Thousands of Ohioans have been vaccinated against COVID-19, thanks to the Ohio Northern University and the state of Ohio’s mass vaccination program.

Governor Mike DeWine asked ONU to join the effort to provide vaccinations to the state in March as a way to reach the underserved rural populations in the region. 

Before COVID-19, the mobile clinic was primarily used for outreach initiatives, fall flu shot clinics, and for remote health and wellness assessments. 

When the pandemic hit, the clinic became the nerve center for ONU’s on-campus testing program and its vaccination efforts.

The mobile clinic has travelled more than 2300 miles across six counties in sixty days.
