Second-home owners are not eligible to get vaccinated in Summit County

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to clarify which homeowners are eligible to be vaccinated in Summit County.

Summit County residents 70 and older now can make an appointment to get the new COVID-19 vaccination, but second-home owners in the area are not eligible.

Summit County spokesperson Julie Sutor said that is because the county’s vaccine allocation is based on its year-round population.

Individuals can receive vaccines only in their primary place of residence, meaning an estimated 27,000 second-home owners in Summit County won’t be able to get one here.

Residents must show a photo ID as proof of residency when arriving for a scheduled vaccination appointment.
