Some Ohio COVID-19 vaccination clinics are changing vaccines or pausing after the CDC's recommendation Tuesday to halt use of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, but state and health officials remain optimistic the state's vaccination program will continue.

State health officials reported 2,742 new cases of COVID-19 in the past hours and 111 new admissions to hospitals. The number of people currently hospitalized with coronavirus has risen to nearly 12-hundred, the highest since the beginning of March.

At Tuesday's cornavirus briefing Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced some residents in five northern Ohio nursing homes will need to be vaccinated again, after some shots were spoiled through human error.

While state officials are scrambling to get more vials of the COVID-19 vaccine for Ohioans, medical professionals administering the shots are finding ways to get more doses from each vial.

State health officials Tuesday reported 7,580 new cases of COVID-19 and 104 new deaths.
