COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

The Vinton County Health Department is partnering with the Vinton County Local School District to provide Pfizer vaccines to students who are 5 to 17 years of age. Pfizer is a two series vaccine given 21 days apart. There is no charge for the vaccine and parents do not need to be present.

The vaccines will be given at your child’s school in the health clinic. If you would like for your child to receive the vaccine, please call your child’s school and request a consent and registration form. These forms will be sent home with your child. You may also pick up the forms in the school office.

Please fill out the Consent to Administer COVID-19 Vaccine and the COVID-19 Vaccine Registration Form. Your signature must appear on both forms. Please return both signed forms to the school by Monday, January 31, 2022. The Vinton County Health Department will schedule the second series and you will be notified of the date.

Safer Ohio School Tip Line

The Safer Ohio School Tip Line is a free safety resource available to all Ohio schools. The tip line is an anonymous reporting system that accepts both calls and texts 24 hours a day.

This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety—whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student.


Things to report to the tip line include (but are not limited to):

  • Bullying incidents;
  • Withdrawn student behaviors;
  • Verbal or written threats observed toward students, faculty or schools;
  • Weapon/suspicious devices on or near school grounds;
  • Gang related activities;
  • Unusual/suspicious behavior of students or staff;
  • Self-harm or suicidal sentiments; and
  • Any other school safety related concerns.




Every tip can remain anonymous. School safety analysts may ask for additional information, but the caller can remain secret or leave his or her contact information for later follow-up.


Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) are answered by analysts within Ohio Homeland Security.  If action is needed, the analysts immediately forward information to local school officials, law enforcement agencies and the Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) for action and follow up.

The OSSC partners with the Ohio Department of Education to follow up with affected school and law enforcement agencies to make sure that the incident is investigated, action is taken and resources and supports are provided when necessary.
