The City of Lakewood, the Lakewood City Schools, and Neighborhood Family Practice announced today a vaccination clinic with the capacity to administer 200 COVID-19 vaccines.

Vaccinations provided by Neighborhood Family Practice will be available to residents who meet the State of Ohio’s vaccine eligibility requirements by appointment only. Appointments will begin at 8:40am on Saturday, March 13 at Garfield Middle School gymnasium in Lakewood, with follow-up second dose appointments on April 10.

Anyone interested in scheduling an appointment should call the City of Lakewood’s Division of Aging at 216-529-5062 and leave a message with full name and phone number. City staff will call back to confirm eligibility and fill the 200 appointment time slots. Once all time slots are filled, no further calls will be accepted or returned.

Mayor Meghan George said, “I am thrilled that the City of Lakewood can be part of this partnership to help our community curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the vaccine rolls out, I know people are concerned they will get left behind but we are doing all we can to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to get their shot if they want one.”

Jean Polster, President and CEO of Neighborhood Family Practice, said, “Neighborhood Family Practice has a long history of service to those living in the diverse communities in and around the near west side of Cleveland, and has been at the forefront of providing COVID-19 testing and vaccines. We are grateful to be able to provide this important vaccination public service to our community.”
