COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ

Summit County is among the top ten Ohio counties with the highest number of positive coronavirus cases, but we have the power to lower our ranking on that list. With COVID-19 vaccines now available, we are administering them as directed by Ohio’s Vaccination Program. NOTE: We are providing the vaccine at our pharmacy location at 2015 State Road, Suite A, in Cuyahoga Falls. 

As your local pharmacy in Cuyahoga Falls, it’s important to us that we share as much information about the vaccine as possible. Please read through the following coronavirus vaccine FAQ before making any decisions to receive the vaccination.

What should I expect from the vaccine process at Klein’s Pharmacy?

Please walk into the store and you will be greeted by a team member who will check you in. Please bring your ID, insurance card, and vaccine card if you have it.
