Cleveland State and 15 other state-run mass vaccination sites set to open

EAST CLEVELAND, March 5, 2021: State Rep. Kent Smith (D-Euclid) along with Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko, Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish and East Cleveland Mayor Brandon King, joined Governor Mike DeWine for a vaccination event at the Salvation Army Friday morning in East Cleveland. Following the tour, they held a press conference where each of them spoke to the media and made remarks.

“I am pleased to welcome Governor DeWine back to East Cleveland.  I was glad to be able to join him for a tour of the free pop-up vaccination clinic at The Learning Zone building operated by the Salvation Army in East Cleveland. Today marks an important turning point in Ohio’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We are thankful the Salvation Army hosting us here today,” said Rep Smith.

Prior to the event, the Biden administration announced that Cleveland State’s Wolstein Center would serve as one of several FEMA-backed mass vaccination sites across the country, with the ability to administer 6,000 vaccine doses per day beginning March 17.

“Following our tour in East Cleveland, I joined a call with members of the Biden administration and Governor DeWine for the announcement that Cleveland State University, my alma mater, had been selected as a mass vaccination site. Eligibility criteria for vaccination will continue to be chosen by the state, which currently is determined by age, occupation and preexisting medical conditions.  Those eligible will be able to register online or call in to learn about how they can register. 6,000 shots a day will significantly help Ohio's fight against virus,” said Rep. Kent Smith.

The Wolstein Center will begin administering vaccines on March 17th. It will be open daily for the subsequent 8 weeks. This is the first mass vaccination site announced in Ohio. A number of smaller, regional mass vaccination sites will open throughout Ohio. They will be able to administer up to 1,000 vaccines a day beginning later this month.

Sites include: Akron, Chillicothe, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Lima, Marietta, Maumee, Wilmington, Youngstown and Zanesville. Another four mobile sites will open in Ada, Athens, Mansfield and Steubenville.
