Ohio's COVID-19 vaccination registration site: How to sign up for an appointment near you

Ohio's 'Get the Shot' site will help you find COVID-19 vaccine appointments throughout the state, including options at Cleveland's Wolstein Center.

CLEVELAND — Looking for a COVID-19 vaccine near you? The state of Ohio launched its new "Get the Shot" COVID-19 vaccination appointment registration database earlier this month. Here's how it works...

First, visit THIS SITE. Then, click the blue button that says: "Check eligibility and book my appointment." This will lead you into a series of questions to determine if you're eligible to register for a vaccination appointment.

"These questions will take about 5-10 minutes to answer," according to the site.

Looking to make an appointment at the mass vaccination site at the Wolstein Center in downtown Cleveland? You can do so by entering 44115 into the zip code when searching for available appointments. You can also book an appointment by calling 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). If no appointments are available, the Wolstein Center's location may not appear.

If you are filling out the form for somebody else, you will be asked to provide your name and information as well.

“When Ohioans visit the system, they will be able to check a box to verify age, occupation or if they have a qualifying medical condition," Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine explained. "Then, they can enter their zip code to see vaccine providers within a 20-mile area."

Gov. DeWine says new appointments will be added to this central scheduling appointment tool daily. If a patient is not eligible, Gov. DeWine says there's also an option to sign up to receive e-mail or text message alerts to indicate when they do qualify for a vaccine.

The availability of this new tool comes just a few days after Gov. DeWine announced he would lift all of the state's COVID-19 health restrictions once we experience two straight weeks where cases are at 50 or less per 100,000 people.
