As we receive vaccine from the state, Mercy Health will schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments for those identified in the State of Ohio’s vaccine distribution guidelines.
At this time, there is limited vaccine supply and we schedule patients as the vaccine is available. We expect these appointments to fill up quickly and appreciate your patience as we work through the process of providing vaccines to those in our communities.
Governor DeWine has established a tiered system for offering vaccinations. For detailed phase information please visit the Ohio Department of Health website.
Currently Eligible to Schedule
All Ohioans, 16 years of age and older.
With parental or legal guardian consent, individuals ages 16 and 17 will be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, which is the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for use in people younger than 18.
Appointments are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
New and existing patients can now reserve their vaccine by making their appointment online.
If you have trouble finding an appointment or if you prefer to speak to one of our service experts, you can call the Mercy Health COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline at 866-624-0366, Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to schedule an appointment or to get additional information about the Mercy Health locations which are offering the COVID-19 vaccine.
Depending on which brand of COVID-19 vaccine you receive, you may receive a single-dose or you may need to return to the same location for a second dose.
- For the Pfizer vaccine, your second shot will be scheduled as close as possible to 21 days after the first shot.
- For the Moderna vaccine, your second shot will be scheduled as close as possible to 28 days after the first shot.
Because of the limited COVID-19 vaccine supply, we are unable to guarantee whether you will receive the Janssen/J&J, Moderna or Pfizer vaccine until you arrive at your appointment.
What to bring to your appointment
You will need to bring the following items to your appointment:
- A mask (if you do not have a mask, one will be provided)
- Form of identification
- Insurance card
- An attestation form is available for you to print and complete prior to your appointment.
Patients visiting our Mercy Health Physicians practices and clinics are encouraged to come without visitors, but one person will be allowed to accompany the patient to a visit if needed to ensure appropriate understanding and implementation of care plans discussed at the visit or to support physical needs of the patient.
Canceling your COVID-19 vaccine appointment
Please note that there is limited COVID-19 vaccine supply and we schedule patients as the vaccine is available. If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason, we will not be able to reschedule your appointment at the time of cancellation and you will need to restart the scheduling process when we receive additional vaccine.
To cancel a confirmed appointment, please log-in to your MyChart account or call 866-624-0366 and press three.
