Getting Vaccinated Against COVID-19
The Christ Hospital Health Network offers COVID-19 vaccines and boosters for patients ages 6 years and up at select locations throughout Greater Cincinnati.
Here you can learn about eligibility and how to schedule your vaccination appointment. The Christ Hospital is currently stocking
Moderna vaccines only.
Moderna Primary COVID-19 Vaccine Series
Your first vaccination against COVID-19 will come in two doses. It is recommended that you get your second shot 4 – 8 weeks after your first dose.
Common side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine may include pain or swelling in the arm where you got the shot, and fever, chills, tiredness, or headache. These side effects are usually mild and go away in a few days.
Moderna COVID-19 Bivalent Boosters (NEW Formula as of Fall 2022)
The COVID-19 bivalent booster adds additional immune protection against the omicron BA.4 and BA.5 variants.
If you received another vaccine brand for your primary series or most recent booster (such as Pfizer), you can still receive a Moderna bivalent booster. You should not receive more than one bivalent booster at this time.
Scheduling Your Vaccination or Booster
At our primary care offices
You can schedule your vaccine or booster online through your

you can sign-up for an account here by answering a few short questions.
You can also call your
