City of Cleveland Announces Participation in Nationwide “Month of Action”

Mayor Frank G. Jackson today announced that the City of Cleveland will be participating in the United States Conference of Mayor’s “Month of Action” Vaccine Challenge. The U.S. Conference of Mayors is launching its month-long challenge to get Americans vaccinated on June 4, with a goal of having 70% of Americans vaccinated by the 4th of July.

This effort is led by the United States Conference of Mayors in conjunction with President Joe Biden, the White House, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Though more than 290 million shots have been administered in cities nationwide since December 2020, only 49% percent of adults have received one shot or been fully vaccinated.

To view the full press release from the U.S. Conference of Mayors, click here.

For more information on the “Mayors Challenge” including a list of participating mayors, see here. To learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, head to vaccines.gov or call the National COVID-19 Vaccination Assistance Hotline at 1-800-232-0233.

City of Cleveland Encourages Residents to Practice COVID-19 Safety Measures

Mayor Frank G. Jackson lifted the city’s Proclamation of Civil Emergency upon its expiration May 31. In light of this, Mayor Jackson and the City of Cleveland strongly recommend and encourage residents to continue adhering to health guidelines:

  • Get vaccinated. The Cleveland Department of Public Health (CDPH) offers vaccination clinics each week at various locations.   To schedule an appointment or get information on CDPH vaccination events or other local vaccine providers, call the City of Cleveland’s COVID-19 Vaccine Call Center at (216) 664-2222

If you have not been vaccinated, continue to follow CDC guidelines:

  • Continue to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth in public settings and anywhere you will be around other people who do not reside in your household.
  • Stay 6 feet apart from others who do not reside in your household.
  • Avoid crowds.
  • Avoid indoor areas that are poorly ventilated.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

City of Cleveland Establishes Call Center to Answer General Vaccine Distribution Questions

The City of Cleveland has established a call center that is currently available to answer general questions pertaining to the City’s vaccine distribution efforts and assist eligible individuals in scheduling an appointment to receive the vaccine.   

  • Call Center Number: (216) 664-2222
  • Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

As a reminder, only individuals who meet the Ohio Department of Health’s criteria are eligible to receive the vaccine at this time. Due to limited supply, it will take time for eligible individuals to receive the vaccine. We ask for your patience. As we receive additional supply, we will be opening up additional vaccination sites and scheduling appointments for eligible individuals to receive the vaccine.
