When Can I Get the COVID-19 Vaccine?

All Floridians age 5 and older are eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Pfizer vaccine is now approved for emergency use by the FDA and CDC for those ages 5 to 15, and fully approved for ages 16+. The vaccines from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are authorized for emergency use in those 18 and older.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be available by appointment only at our designated vaccination sites.

To schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment, you must be an established patient who has seen a Cleveland Clinic Florida provider in the last two years for outpatient or inpatient care.

Those under the age of 18 who are coming to a Cleveland Clinic vaccination site must be accompanied by a parent or guardian or provide written consent from their parent or guardian in order to receive the vaccine.

How can I receive a booster dose or third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?

If you are immunocompromised:

The FDA and CDC have approved a booster dose (third dose) of the COVID-19 vaccine for certain patients with compromised immune systems who received their first two doses of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.) These doses must be given at least 28 days after a patient’s second dose. The CDC and FDA say a third dose is safe and can provide added protection from severe illness or death from COVID-19 in patients who may have a weakened response to vaccination due to certain medical conditions or medications.

If you're eligible for a third dose and have questions, we encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider.

If you received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine:

The FDA and CDC have approved a booster dose of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for certain individuals at least six months after the second dose was received.

Booster doses are recommended for:

  • Individuals ages 65 and older.
  • Individuals in long-term care settings.
  • Individuals ages 50 to 64 who have underlying medical conditions that place them at higher risk for severe COVID-19.

Those who are also eligible to receive booster doses include:

  • Individuals ages 18 to 49 who have underlying medical conditions that place them at higher risk for severe COVID-19.
  • Individuals in institutional settings, or those who have an occupational risk of exposure to COVID-19.

At this time, we are offering booster doses of both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines by appointment.

If you received the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine:

A booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine has been approved by the FDA and CDC for individuals ages 18 and older. A booster dose may be given at least two months after the initial one-dose vaccine.

Is the third dose for people with compromised immune systems different than a booster dose?

  • For individuals with compromised immune systems who received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, a third dose is recommended and must be given at least 28 days after the second dose.
  • For individuals who have received two doses of a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, and meet certain requirements outlined above, a booster dose can be given accordingly.

Can I receive a booster dose of a different vaccine brand?

The FDA and CDC have authorized receiving a booster dose of a different vaccine brand than your initial vaccine brand. For example, if you received an initial dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you can receive a Pfizer or Moderna booster dose.

Things to Consider Before Scheduling Your Appointment

  • If you have had a severe allergic reaction to any vaccine or injectable therapy (intramuscular, intravenous, or subcutaneous), please tell the care team when you come in for your vaccination.
  • If you had a severe allergic reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine, you should not receive a second booster of the same vaccine at this time.
  • If you had COVID-19 in the past 90 days, you may choose to delay having the COVID-19 vaccine at this time. It’s uncommon to get reinfected within 90 days after having COVID-19. Please note: You must have recovered from COVID-19 when you get the vaccine.
  • If you received monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma as part of COVID-19 treatment, you should delay getting the vaccine for at least 90 days after your treatment.
  • If you are immunocompromised, please talk to your healthcare provider before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • If you are pregnant, suspect you are pregnant, or are breastfeeding, the CDC recommends you should be vaccinated, based on current research and safety data.

After receiving your vaccine:

Please review V-safe After Vaccination Health Checker, a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins with the CDC after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

Frequently Asked Questions Icon

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I update MyChart to include my COVID-19 vaccination record?

MyChart displays your immunizations as documented within your Cleveland Clinic medical record. If you received your COVID-19 vaccination outside of Cleveland Clinic, please contact your primary care provider’s office for assistance. Your care team can access your vaccine record from the state registry and add it to your chart.

Which vaccine will I get? Can I choose?

The FDA and CDC have approved the Pfizer vaccine for emergency use in those 5 to 15, and fully approved it for those 16+. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for emergency use for those 18 and older in the United States.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are given in two doses, while the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is given in one dose.

We are not able to offer you a choice of which vaccine you’ll get. Cleveland Clinic is offering the two-dose Pfizer vaccine at our vaccination sites across Northeast Ohio. If you got Moderna for your first dose, we recommend you contact the site where you got your first dose to schedule your next vaccination.

If I’m getting the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, when and how will my second dose be scheduled?

When you complete your first vaccination appointment, your second dose appointment will be automatically scheduled for you. If you’ve received the Pfizer vaccine, your next appointment will be three weeks from your first appointment. If you’ve received the Moderna vaccine, your appointment will be four weeks from your first appointment. Your second appointment will be at the same time of day as your first appointment. If you need to change your appointment, you can do so via MyChart or by calling 216.444.2538 or by calling the scheduling numbers listed above. If you don't have MyChart, you can schedule your second dose by phone when you make your first appointment.

Can I bring a caregiver to my appointment?

The safety of our patients and caregivers is our top priority. To maintain social distancing measures at our vaccination sites, we ask that patients who need assistance bring only one caregiver with them to their vaccination appointment. Keep in mind, everyone attending the appointment must wear a mask.

Can I still get the COVID-19 vaccine if I am late or miss my appointment?

If you’re scheduled for the COVID-19 vaccine, please make every effort to be on time for your appointment. While we understand unforeseen circumstances or travel issues may arise, these vaccines must be used in a time-sensitive manner and our supplies are very limited. To ensure that every dose is utilized, vaccines that are unused at the end of the day will be given to vaccinators and caregivers working with patients who have COVID-19.

  • If you arrive later than 30 minutes from your scheduled appointment, you may need to be rescheduled.
  • If you miss your vaccine appointment, due to limited supplies, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to immediately reschedule you.
  • If you cancel your appointment for a second dose, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to reschedule you within the recommended timeframe for the second dose. We will only be able to reschedule you if supplies are available.

Why should my child get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Vaccination is one of the most important ways to slow the spread of the virus and protect you from severe illness and death. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated when they are eligible.

Children have generally had milder cases of COVID-19, and most don’t have serious symptoms. However, some children have become severely ill from acute COVID-19 or from post-COVID-19 multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). It's important to note that children can transmit the virus, so it’s important to protect them — and those around them — by getting them vaccinated. Plus, vaccinating children will help all of us reach herd immunity and get the pandemic under control.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe for children?

Similar to the first authorized COVID-19 vaccines for adults, the Pfizer vaccine went through rigorous testing and analysis to determine its safety and effectiveness in children 5+ before it was made available to them. Because children’s immune systems are different than adults and change as they age, vaccines are tested and approved for different age groups. Medical trials involving children involve strict protocols to ensure their safety, and trials are still underway for children 6 months to 5 years old.

I got my first Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine elsewhere. Can I get my second dose at Cleveland Clinic?

If you've gotten the first dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, it's important to get your second dose for maximum protection. If you got the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at a non-Cleveland Clinic location, we're able to schedule you for your second dose at one of our Cleveland Clinic locations.

We are currently offering the two-dose vaccine made by Pfizer at our vaccination sites across the Florida region.

So, if you got Moderna for your first dose, we recommend you contact the site where you got your first dose to schedule your next vaccination. There may also be other local sites offering second doses of Moderna.

How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost? If I get one that requires two doses, will I pay twice, once for each dose?

At this time, there is no charge directly to patients for the COVID-19 vaccination and its administration. It is important to note that this may change as our federal government continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. A minor charge of $37 will be billed to insurance for the administration of each vaccination.

Is the cost the same at all Cleveland Clinic locations?

At this time, yes.

Will my insurance be billed for my vaccination or will I have to pay out of pocket?

Your insurance will be billed for the administration of the COVID-19 vaccination. There is no out-of-pocket charge to patients at this time.

Can I still get vaccinated at a Cleveland Clinic location, even if I don’t have insurance?

Yes, you can get vaccinated at a Cleveland Clinic location.

How much does a COVID-19 vaccine cost without insurance?

At this time, there is no charge to patients for the COVID-19 vaccination and its administration.

Can I get a discount on my COVID-19 vaccine?

A discount is not necessary as there is no direct charge to patients for the COVID-19 vaccination at this time. Only insurance is charged for vaccine administration.

What do I do if I believe I received a bill in error for a COVID-19 vaccine?

We are not planning to bill patients directly for the COVID-19 vaccination or its administration at this time. As federal regulations during the pandemic may change and insurance claims are processed, please report any billing concerns to Cleveland Clinic customer service at 866.621.6385.
