COVID Testing, Vaccines and Boosters with Southeast Healthcare
Southeast Healthcare follows the CDC and Ohio local health departments' protocol for COVID-19 Vaccinations. We provide vaccines and boosters for all Ohioans 18 years and older.

Because COVID-19 is a new disease with new vaccines, information is rapidly emerging about how vaccines can help us stop the pandemic. The CDC has studies that show COVID-19 vaccines prevent serious disease, hospitalizations and death. Vaccines do not fully protect you until 2 weeks after your full series.
In October 2021, the CDC authorized booster doses for certain individuals (see chart below). Also in August 2021, the CDC authorized a third Moderna dose to individuals with specific immunocompromised conditions or medications. Patients should consult with their personal medical providers to see if they meet these criteria.
In Franklin County, Southeast Healthcare is located downtown at W. Long St and High St. For your vaccine appointment you will need to enter Southeast Healthcare through the Fresh A.I.R. Gallery at 131 N. High Street and follow the screening procedures before your appointment.
|What Vaccine Did You Get First?||Who is Eligible for a Booster?||When Can I Get a Booster?||What Booster Can I Get?|
