UC Health Offering Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine May 7

May. 4, 2021

CINCINNATI — Those who prefer the convenience of a one-dose COVID-19 vaccine can make plans to receive it at UC Health's Vaccination Clinic this Friday.

The UC Health COVID-19 Community Vaccination Center will administer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine Friday, May 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments are recommended but not required.

“Many people prefer the convenience of a one-dose COVID-19 vaccine, such as those with busy careers or lifestyles, or because of social barriers like work or transportation,” said Dustin J. Calhoun, MD, associate professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and medical director of Emergency Management for UC Health. “We encourage all members of the community who wish to receive a COVID-19 vaccine to take advantage of the opportunity to do so.”

Advance appointments are encouraged to ensure a faster and more efficient experience. Current patients may be able to view vaccine appointments by logging onto their My UC Health (MyChart) account. Anyone can also schedule an appointment by calling 513-584-DOSE (3673).

UC Health’s drive-through vaccination center is located inside the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute’s parking garage at 3113 Bellevue Ave.

Those who don’t drive a vehicle can enter the main entrance of the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute, then take the main elevators to Level P1.

All those age 16 and older can receive a COVID-19 vaccine at UC Health as part of the state of Ohio’s distribution plan. Please note that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is approved for use for those age 18 and older.

Recipients do NOT have to be an Ohio resident or a current patient to receive a vaccine at UC Health.
