When Can I Receive the COVID-19 Vaccine?

Cleveland Clinic is working with state and federal officials on this complex vaccination program. We will distribute vaccines according to Ohio Department of Health criteria.

Due to limited supply and the overwhelming interest in the vaccine, we will contact our oldest, most vulnerable patients age 80 and older. They will be contacted by phone or on MyChart to schedule their vaccine appointment.

For patients who are not contacted, we ask for patience. As we receive additional vaccine supply, we will be offering appointments to more patients.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be available by appointment only at our designated vaccination sites. The vaccine will not be available in our provider offices or walk-in clinics. Currently, the supply of vaccines available is very limited. Appointments may not be immediately available. We appreciate your patience as we work through the process of getting vaccines into our communities.

Health considerations before you schedule 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 have a severe allergic reaction to the first COVID-19 vaccine, you should not receive the second booster vaccine at this time.
  • If you had COVID-19 in the past 90 days, you may choose to defer the COVID-19 vaccine at this time. Reinfection is uncommon in the 90 days after the initial infection. Please note: You must have recovered from COVID-19 at the time you receive the vaccine.
  • If you received monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma as part of COVID-19 treatment, you should defer the vaccine for at least 90 days after 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, please talk to your pregnancy healthcare provider before receiving the vaccine.

The community vaccination process will take several months to complete. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work toward vaccinating as many people as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will vaccinations open up to more people?

Due to limited supply and the overwhelming interest in the vaccine, we will contact our oldest, most vulnerable patients age 80 and older. They will be contacted by phone or on MyChart to schedule their vaccine appointment.

For patients who are not contacted, we ask for patience. As we receive additional vaccine supply, we will be offering appointments to more patients.

Once I receive the first dose of the vaccine, when and how will my second dose be scheduled?

It is important that patients receive both doses of their COVID-19 vaccine in order to get the maximum benefit from the vaccine. Your second dose can be scheduled on MyChart. After receiving your first dose, you will have a notification on your MyChart homepage to schedule. Learn more about how to schedule your second dose in MyChart.

Pfizer’s vaccine doses are given 21 days apart. Moderna’s vaccine doses are 28 days apart. However, if you are unable to schedule your second dose at these intervals, the CDC says there is no maximum interval between doses and the series does not need to be restarted if the second dose is given later.

How much does each COVID-19 vaccine cost? Will I pay twice, once for each dose?

At this time, there is no charge 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. It is important to note that this may change as our federal government continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Can I still get vaccinated at a Cleveland Clinic hospital, 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. It is important to note that this may change as our federal government continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

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

A discount is not necessary as there is no charge to patients for the COVID-19 vaccination at this time. It is important to note that this may change as our federal government continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

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 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.
