Ohio's Mass Vaccination Clinic at Wolstein Center to Offer Pfizer Vaccine During Clinic's Final Week
(COLUMBUS, Ohio)— Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced today that Ohio's Mass Vaccination Clinic in Cleveland will offer the Pfizer vaccine during the clinic's twelfth and final week. The clinic's last day of operations will be Monday, June 7.
The clinic, located at Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center at 2000 Prospect Avenue, opened in mid-March with the intention of staying open for eight weeks. Governor DeWine, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) later decided to extend the clinic to a total of 12 weeks. In its first 10 weeks of operations, nearly 255,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered at the clinic.
"Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for those ages 12 and up, so if you are a parent who has been thinking about bringing your child to the Wolstein Center for their vaccination, now is the time," said Governor DeWine. "This clinic has been tremendously successful, and the process to get in and out the door here has been fast and efficient for both youth and adults."
Those who receive their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at the Wolstein Center before the clinic closes will be scheduled to receive their second dose at an area Discount Drug Mart location. Free transportation in Cuyahoga County is available by calling 2-1-1. Youth ages 12-17 who are not emancipated must have consent from and be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to be vaccinated at the Wolstein Center. Parking is free.
Ohio's Mass Vaccination Clinic at the Wolstein Center is open 7 days a week. Walk-ins are welcome from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. or vaccination appointments can be reserved at gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov or by calling 833-4-ASK-ODH. There are also more than 1,200 other local area providers offering vaccines across the state.
Ohioans who have received at least one dose of vaccine at the Wolstein Center or any other vaccination clinic are eligible to enter the Ohio Vax-a-Million drawing for a chance to win $1 million or a four-year Ohio state college or university scholarship.
