CLEVELAND — After nearly three months in operation, the mass vaccination clinic held at Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center will close to the public, administering final doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to Northeast Ohioans Monday.
Only the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine, which has been approved for anyone ages 12 and older, will be used on the clinic's final day.
"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 Ohio Governor Mike DeWine in May. "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."
The clinic will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and appointments can be made either by calling 833-4-ASK-ODH (833-417-4523) or at gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov. Walk-in appointments are also accepted (from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m).
Anyone who receives their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at the Wolstein Center will have the appointment for their second dose scheduled at their nearest Discount Drug Mart.
Anyone under the age of 18 must have consent and be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to receive a vaccine at Cleveland State's Wolstein Center.
In its first 10 weeks of operation at the mass vaccination site, nearly 255,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had been administered at the clinic. As of June 6, more than 5,380,000 Ohioans have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine-- roughly 46 percent of the state's population.
Speaking on the early success of the Wolstein Center's vaccination site, Ohio Department of Health Director Stephanie McCloud said, "This is taken, as you might imagine- and as you know- a Herculean effort to undertake."
