Free bus rides offered to Wolstein Center for large groups wanting to get COVID-19 vaccine

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Wolstein Center wants your COVID-19 vaccine experience to be easy.

No hurdles. No fuss.

“We thought ‘hey what if we were able to bring in groups,” said Brigadier General Rebecca O’Connor, dual-status commander for the Wolstein Center.

That’s why the center has teamed up with Cuyahoga County and Greater Cleveland RTA, to offer free bus rides to and from the mass vaccination site for large groups.

“It makes the transportation so much easier and hopefully can reach those people that might otherwise not be able to come in,” Brigadier General O’Connor told 19 News.

Call 216-615-6313 to request a group vaccination appointment.

An RTA bus will drop off your group outside the Wolstein Center.

The offer is available for community clubs, churches, workplaces, or any group of 20 or more.

You’ll need to provide a time and location for pickup.

Right now, the Wolstein Center is administering the Pfizer vaccine, which requires two doses, spaced three weeks apart. Also, only those 16 or older can get the Pfizer vaccine.

“The more people we can get through today, the faster we can get back to normal,” said Brigadier General O’Connor.
