How to Get Your COVID-19 Vaccine

Keeping up with your boosters (or deciding to get your first vaccine if you've never gotten one) is critical to keeping COVID at bay.

Where Can I Get My COVID-19 Vaccine or Booster?

You or your child can easily get your vaccine or booster at:

  • Your primary care physician or pediatrician's next appointment. If you don't have any upcoming appointments, just call for a nurse visit to get your vaccine.
  • Select Cleveland Clinic pharmacies. Vaccine appointments are available in MyChart for our Avon, Beachwood, Cleveland Clinic main campusStrongsville and Willoughby Hills pharmacies in Ohio, and for our Weston pharmacy in Florida.
  • Not a Cleveland Clinic patient? You can get your vaccine at a local pharmacy or health department. To find locations, visit or call the CDC at 800.232.0233.

Who Needs a COVID-19 Booster?

Studies show that COVID-19 vaccine protection decreases over time. Boosters offer extra protection, especially against severe illness that can lead to a hospital stay or even dying from the virus.

Here's who the CDC recommends should get a booster:

  • Children ages 6 months to 4 years who completed their primary Moderna series.
  • Everyone ages 5+ who completed their primary series.
  • If you're immunocompromised, extra doses can give added protection.

Not sure if you're eligible for a booster? Check with your primary care physician.

Can I Still Get a COVID-19 Vaccine for the First Time?

Yes! Everyone ages 6 months+ can now get the COVID-19 vaccine. If you were on the fence before, we still encourage everyone to get vaccinated to protect themselves, those around them and your community.

COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?

Yes. We strongly encourage everyone is who eligible (6 months and up) to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, your child, other family members and your community from COVID-19.

If I've had COVID-19, should I get vaccinated anyway?

We still recommend that you get the vaccine even if you’ve had COVID-19. But you may consider waiting 90 days after getting infected. That's because it’s not common to get COVID-19 again within three months.
