CLEVELAND — There’s a new mass COVID vaccination site option in Cleveland courtesy of a collaboration with MetroHealth and MCPc, a data security and sustainability company.

MCPc has announced their Old Brooklyn Asset Disposition Center at 4371 Pearl Road will be used for MetroHealth as a mass vaccination clinic on Fridays and Saturdays starting March 19.

“Vaccinations will be provided for those who are eligible based on appointment availability with the capacity to provide up to 1,000 vaccinations per day,” officials said.

It comes just a few days after the city of Cleveland became home to the state's first mass COVID-19 vaccination site at the Wolstein Center, which has a goal of administering 6,000 shots per day.

The services delivered in this building address major tech problems organizations struggle to manage including e-waste, data destruction on retired assets and maximizing the useful life of their computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.”
