Cleveland units up name heart to reply vaccine questions


CLEVELAND – Given the ongoing uncertainty about the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, the City of Cleveland has set up a free hotline to answer questions about this matter.

Residents with concerns or inquiries can call (216) -664-2222 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The call center staff can also help staff make appointments to receive the recordings.

“Due to the limited supply, it will take time for eligible people to receive the vaccine,” the city said in a statement Tuesday. “We ask for your patience. As soon as we receive additional offers, we will open additional vaccination centers and make appointments for eligible persons to receive the vaccine.”

Aside from people like frontline health workers and nursing homes, the vaccines are currently only available to members of the public who are at least 80 years old. In the following weeks and months other groups should be considered.
