When Can I Get the COVID-19 Vaccine?

All Ohioans age 16 and over are now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for emergency use by the FDA in those 16 and older, while the vaccines from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are authorized for emergency use in those 18 and older. Cleveland Clinic anticipates receiving doses of the Pfizer vaccine over the next several weeks and will be able to offer vaccinations to those ages 16 and older at all of our locations.

Teenagers 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.

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 limited. Appointments may not be immediately available. We appreciate your patience as we work through the process of getting vaccines into our communities.

We want to make sure you have every opportunity to receive the vaccine. Appointments may also be available at other hospitals, health departments and pharmacies. For more information, please visit the Ohio Department of Health website. We encourage you to get vaccinated wherever you’re able to.

Before you schedule your appointment, please first consider:

  • 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, please talk to your Ob/Gyn or midwife before getting the vaccine.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to know about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine pause?

The FDA has recommended a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine following reports of a small number of patients developing blood clots after receiving it. Although the reaction has been extremely rare, the FDA and CDC made the decision to pause the vaccine out of an abundance of caution. If you've received the single-dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson, here's what to look out for.

Once I get the COVID-19 vaccine, can I stop wearing a mask and social distancing?

The CDC has issued guidance for those who are fully vaccinated from COVID-19. You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving your second dose in a two-dose series (such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines) or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

If you’re fully vaccinated from COVID-19, you can have small, indoor visits with others who are fully vaccinated. You can also then have small gatherings with others from a single household who are not vaccinated and have a low-risk for developing severe COVID-19 disease. And you no longer need to quarantine or get tested if you have been in close contact with someone who is positive for COVID-19 but does not have any symptoms.

The CDC adds that you should still continue to wear masks and physically distance in public spaces even if you’re fully vaccinated. You should also avoid being in direct contact with unvaccinated people from multiple households, unvaccinated people at high-risk for severe COVID-19 disease, and those living with an unvaccinated person at high-risk for severe COVID-19 disease. Plus, after being fully vaccinated, you should still watch out for symptoms of COVID, especially if you’ve been around someone who is COVID-positive. If you develop symptoms, you should get tested and stay away from others.

There is still much to learn about how effective vaccines are against COVID-19 variants, as well as how well vaccines keep people from spreading the virus. We will continue to watch for updated guidance from the CDC as more data becomes available.

It’s important to note that this guidance does not apply to healthcare settings, and our current masking policies remain in place. All patients, visitors and caregivers at Cleveland Clinic will still be screened and required to wear a face mask in our facilities, even if they are fully vaccinated.

Which vaccine will I get? Can I choose?

Cleveland Clinic is offering two FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Pfizer and Moderna. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are given in two doses. The vaccines aren’t interchangeable – so if you get the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you must get both doses from the same manufacturer.

We are not able to offer you a choice of which vaccine you’ll get because of the vaccine’s storage requirements and limited supply.

How much and what type of vaccine we get from the state varies each week. Our schedulers only know what open appointment slots are available, but they don’t know what type of vaccine will be available. When you arrive for your appointment, we will let you know which vaccine you will get.

All Ohioans age 16 and over are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for emergency use by the FDA in those 16 and older, while the Moderna vaccine is authorized for emergency use in those 18 and older. Cleveland Clinic anticipates receiving doses of the Pfizer vaccine over the next several weeks and will be able to offer vaccinations to those ages 16 and older at all of our locations.

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

When you schedule 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. 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?

Teenagers 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.

Adults 18 and older who need assistance can 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.

I received my first Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine elsewhere, can I receive my second dose at Cleveland Clinic?

If you are getting either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, these are given in two doses. You must receive both doses for maximum benefit. It is best to receive both doses of vaccine from the same provider. This will make sure that you get a vaccine from the same manufacturer each time. If you got your first dose elsewhere and make a second dose appointment at Cleveland Clinic, we can't guarantee that we will have a vaccine dose from the right manufacturer for you, and we may need to cancel your appointment.

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.
