House Minority Leader Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) and Sen. Vernon Sykes (D-Akron) issued the following joint statement on the current state of the vaccine rollout in Ohio schools.

“In a week where the DeWine administration failed to identify 4,000 COVID related deaths, the Governor takes to the news on a Friday evening to chastise school districts who have suffered under the continued mismanagement of the vaccination distribution process. We all want our kids back in school and our economy booming but we’ve been hindered by the failed leadership from the top that refuses to acknowledge where the real issues are, and instead places the blame on teachers, administrators and parents.”
