COLUMBUS, Ohio — Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center is now in its fourth week as a FEMA COVID-19 mass vaccination site as Ohioans start to receive their second shot.
During his briefing on Thursday, Gov. Mike DeWine took a few moments to compliment the site for its work vaccinating Ohioans so far. His presentation included a time-lapse video showing the efficiency of the vaccination process inside the Wolstein Center. (You can watch the video above)
"My understanding is there's no other FEMA vaccination site across the country that does it this way," DeWine said. "We're using a stationary patient model. Citizens come in, they take their seat, those administrating shots go straight down the aisle and go to them. They're vaccinating 500 people every single hour."
DeWine expressed his appreciation to FEMA, the Department of Defense, the Ohio National Guard, Cleveland State University, and all of the local partners who have worked in support to make the site efficient.
"It's quite an operation," DeWine said.
