Cleveland Clinic Offers COVID-19 Vaccine at Lutheran Hospital

 

One of Cleveland Clinic’s goals during the COVID-19 pandemic is to make sure our communities have every opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. A key focus of the health system’s vaccine distribution process includes ensuring that those who are at higher risk of infection and death from the virus – including Black, Hispanic and underserved communities – have access to the vaccine. On May 4, Cleveland Clinic Lutheran Hospital opened a community-based COVID-19 vaccination clinic, bringing the total number of Cleveland Clinic vaccination locations in Northeast Ohio to ten.

 


Leonor Osorio, DO

“We are in this together and until we all get vaccinated, the pandemic won’t end,” said Dr. Leonor Osorio, internal medicine physician at Cleveland Clinic Lutheran Hospital whose practice focuses on addressing the health needs and concerns most prevalent among Hispanic patients. “We need to get vaccinated not only for ourselves, but to help protect our loved ones and our community.”

 

Economic and social disparities have played a significant role in the risk of COVID-19 exposure among minority communities. We know vaccination is the most important public health measure we have to slow the spread of the virus. Having a significant portion of the public vaccinated will help us prevent serious hospitalizations and death, and will eventually allow a return to normal. 

 

“Getting vaccinated will help end suffering from long-term complications and death from COVID-19,” added Dr. Osorio.

 

As we await more widespread access to the COVID-19 vaccine, we must all continue taking important precautions to help slow the spread of the virus. This includes wearing a mask, frequent hand washing and sanitizing, social distancing and limiting gatherings.

 

The COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Lutheran Hospital offers the vaccine to all Ohio residents age 16 and older per Ohio Department of Health criteria. Vaccinations will be available on Tuesdays, by appointment only. Appointments can be scheduled through MyChart for Cleveland Clinic patients, or by calling the vaccine hotline, which is open Tuesday through Friday 9am-4pm ET, at 216-448-4117. Individuals who receive the COVID-19 vaccine at Lutheran Hospital will have access to on-site bilingual interpreters, bilingual way-finding signage and vaccine information available in Spanish, Arabic, Somali, and Swahili.
