Protect yourself and others. Heart of Ohio Family Health is offering COVID-19 vaccinations and testings to keep our patients safe during this pandemic.
COVID-19 vaccinations are now available at Heart of Ohio Family Health at our Capital Park, Whitehall and Whitehall-Yearling High School locations. We currently offer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, a series of two doses administered 28 days apart.
To schedule your vaccination, please call (614) 235-5555.
What to expect at your COVID-19 vaccination appointment
Please bring your driver’s license or a valid ID and insurance card to your appointment. If you are a new patient, you will be required to fill out our Patient Registration Form. For existing patients, you will fill out the COVID-19 Registration Form for the Ohio Department of Health.
We encourage patients to wear a short sleeve top or loose top for the vaccination. The shot will take less than five minutes. After your vaccination, our providers will have you sit for 15 minutes to ensure you do not have any immediate side effects. Meanwhile, you will be scheduled for the second dose if this is your first dose.
Common side effects
Some general side effects of the Moderna vaccine include fatigue, headache, muscle pain, joint pain, chills, nausea and vomiting, and fever. Read more about the Moderna vaccine.
