Inpatient Ohio nurses: You can order COVID-19 boosters in Epic Jan. 18

To help expand access to the COVID-19 booster, inpatient nurses at Ohio hospitals* may assess hospitalized patients’ eligibility for a COVID-19 booster and place orders in Epic, beginning Jan. 18.

Pharmacies at inpatient locations also may now fill COVID-19 booster orders on demand. Nurses will continue to administer boosters to inpatients, with the Pfizer product available across Cleveland Clinic locations in Ohio.

Please note, inpatient nurses may only order booster shots, while licensed practitioners may continue to order any dose of the Pfizer series.
