Cleveland outlines free parking websites, parking restrictions round Wolstein Heart’s mass coronavirus vaccination clinic


CLEVELAND, Ohio – If you get a COVID-19 vaccine at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center, you can park for free in a nearby parking lot, the City of Cleveland confirmed on Saturday.

The city has published a map with five parking spaces near the Wolstein Center, which is free for vaccinations. The map also indicates where it is forbidden to park on the street during the operation of the mass vaccination center.

Four of the parking lots are located south of the Wolstein Center, the fifth east, on the opposite side of East 21st Street. The lots are closest to Gate B, where the general public will enter the arena.

You can take a more detailed look at the lots locations at the top of this post.

In addition, parking restrictions will be enforced around the Wolstein Center from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm “every day the clinic is open,” according to a Cleveland City press release. From Wednesday you can no longer park on both sides of the street:

  • East 18th Street, between Carnegie and Euclid Streets
  • East 19th Street, between Carnegie Avenue and the Central Avenue extension
  • East 21st Street, between Carnegie and Euclid Streets
  • Carnegie Avenue, between East 18th and East 21st streets
  • Prospect Avenue, between East 18th and East 21st streets
  • Central Avenue, between East 18th and East 19th Streets

The restricted parking spaces are marked in red on the map at the top of this post.

Cleveland officials as well as state and federal partners previously said Free parking would be available, but the list of parking spaces wasn’t finalized and released until Saturday evening.

Officials also encourage those with appointments to take public transportation such as RTA to get to the city center. Laketran also offers free transportation to the mass vaccination clinic of the Wolstein Center from the newly opened Frank J. Polivka Transit Center at Lakeland Community College.
