Our next phase of COVID-19 vaccination in Ohio: patients and the general public
Over the past three weeks, we have provided COVID-19 vaccines to more than 10,000 of our oldest, most vulnerable patients in Ohio. Beginning Feb. 15, as part of our updated state vaccine guidance, we are expanding our vaccination program to include Cleveland Clinic patients as well as any Ohio residents, age 65 and older.
We will also begin vaccinating Ohio residents who, regardless of age, have a severe medical condition. Additional information will be shared next week.
Detailed information is below for both patients and Ohio residents interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine at a Cleveland Clinic vaccination site.
What this means when we have available vaccine supply
- If patients have an active MyChart account, they will receive a MyChart notification that they have a scheduling ticket and may make an appointment.
- If they need assistance with scheduling, or are not a Cleveland Clinic patient, they can access our web registration or call our vaccine hotline at 216.448.4117 and leave a message to sign up for our waitlist.
- Due to limited vaccine supply, we can only invite small groups to schedule at one time. Therefore, people may not be able to immediately schedule an appointment. We will continue to open appointment slots when we have vaccine available.
Due to the limited supply and overwhelming demand, this complex vaccination program will take several months. We appreciate that many people are eager to receive the vaccine and ask for patience as we do not yet have the supply to meet this demand. Our vaccine allocation is determined by state and federal guidance.
Appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine may also be available at other hospitals, health departments and pharmacies. For more information, please visit the Ohio Department of Health website.
