Protect Yourself with the COVID-19 Vaccine

Lower Lights Christian Health Center patients may make a nurse appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or booster at any of our locations by calling (614) 274-1455 option 1 or by requesting one in advance as part of a regularly scheduled appointment with your provider.  COVID-19 vaccines are available to LLCHC patients and the public by walking in to the Lower Lights Pharmacy at 1160 W. Broad St.  COVID-19 vaccines are available weekdays from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. There is no cost to receive the vaccine.

Public COVID-19 vaccinations are also available through Columbus Public Health. Visit for more information.

How can I be tested for COVID-19?

Lower Lights Christian Health Center patients may ask for a limited number of take-home COVID-19 tests at the front desk at all locations, subject to availability.

Things to Know

Those who should not receive a vaccine at this time:

  • Those who have received passive antibody therapy (monoclonal antibodies or convalescent serum) as treatment for COVID-19 within the past 90 days.
  • Those who are currently sick. For example, are you currently experiencing fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, etc.?

Those who should consult their medical provider before signing up for a vaccine:

  • Those who have a history of severe allergic reactions (This would include an allergic reaction [e.g., anaphylaxis] that required treatment with epinephrine or EpiPen® or that caused you to go to the hospital. It would also include an allergic reaction that occurred within 4 hours that caused hives, swelling, or respiratory distress, including wheezing.)
  • Those who have experienced previous reactions to a component of the COVID-19 vaccine, including polyethylene glycol (PEG), which is found in some medications, such as laxatives and preparations for colonoscopy procedures.
  • Those with previous reactions to Polysorbate.
  • Those diagnosed with Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in the last 90 days.
  • Those who have ever been diagnosed with myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) or pericarditis.


Speak with your provider about recommended immunizations for you and your family.


Please bring photo id or Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, or List B identity document in addition to insurance information if you have insurance (there is NO CHARGE to you to receive the COVID-19 vaccine).  COVID-19 vaccinations are available regardless of immigration status. If you are under the age of 18, you need to be accompanied by your parent or guardian.  If this is your second dose or booster dose, please make every effort to bring your COVID-19 vaccine card with you to your appointment.  If you do not bring your card and we are unable to verify your previous vaccine record on the State of Ohio database, you will not be able to receive a vaccine during your visit.

  • You and our team will wear a mask covering your nose and mouth while you are in our building.
  • You will be checked in and a member of our team will review the screening questions with you.
  • After you receive your vaccine, you will be asked to wait up to 30 minutes to be monitored for a possible reaction.

If you choose to get a COVID-19 vaccine, you will not have to pay. Vaccine doses purchased with taxpayer dollars will be given to Ohioans who choose to receive them at no out-of-pocket cost. Vaccine providers will be able to charge an administration fee for giving the shot to someone. Providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the federal Health Resources & Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund.
