This week will start the mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center in the Downtown area on the city’s east side.
There will be a lot of people attending and that will mean limited options for parking, especially on the streets surrounding the site and even several blocks away in different directions.
It is highly recommended to arrive early for the scheduled appointment in order to get a secured spot and to be on time.
The City of Cleveland is also aware of the traffic that is expected in Downtown and has announced that free parking will be offered for those who will be arriving for their shots.
Public transportation (i.e. Greater Cleveland RTA) is strongly encouraged, but for those who are still planning on driving to the Wolstein Center, there is a map below of where to park. The highlighted areas are in yellows. Look for the RTA Shuttle Bus spot on the map as well for those who are not able to operate a vehicle.
Now, there are some restrictions in regards to parking for the mass clinic.
From WJW Fox 8 News Cleveland:
The city laid out the following street restrictions in a press release:
- E. 18th: No parking on both sides of the street from Carnegie to Euclid
