FAQs

Ages 18 and up may receive the vaccine of your choice for a first dose or for the booster.  Your second dose must be the same vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) as you received for your first dose.  For ages 5-17, the only authorized vaccine is the Pfizer vaccine.  Ages 12 – 17 may receive a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine. (New) Second booster doses of Pfizer and Moderna are available starting 4 months after the 1st booster dose, for those 65 and older OR age 50-64 with an underlying medical condition.

The Pfizer second dose should be received 21 days after the first dose.

The Moderna second dose should be received 28 days after the first dose.

We will give you an eligibility date for the second dose during your first dose.

For booster doses (age 18 and older), any of the three vaccines may be given 5 months after the second dose if Moderna/Pfizer or 2 months after Johnson & Johnson single dose vaccine.  Ages 12-17 may receive a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine (only) 5 months after the second dose.  Second booster doses are available to those 65 and older OR age 50-64 with an underlying medical condition 4 months after the first booster dose.

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.
