CLEVELAND — The Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court is offering assistance and computer access to those who have not yet signed up for their COVID-19 vaccinations.

“We know that not everyone has access to the technology necessary for on-line vaccine signups,” says Administrative and Presiding Judge Brendan J. Sheehan. “If someone is already in the Justice Center, and has not been able to schedule a vaccination time, then we want to help them in any way we can.”

The Court’s Resource Center on the fourth floor has computer with internet access available to register for available vaccinations, and resource center staff will be available to answer any questions, according to a news release from the court.

There will be signs at the Ontario Street entrance to the Justice Center and in the probation offices to let people know about the assistance.

Vaccinations will take place at designated facilities, not the Justice Center, officials said. The vaccinations are free, and the Resource Center Staff will provide website links that visitors can use to schedule their shots.

“The medical experts tell us that the more people that get vaccinated, the quicker we can return to our normal lives,” adds Judge Sheehan. “The Court is here to protect our citizens in any way we can.”

Justice Center representatives remind visitors that masks are mandatory, elevators are limited to two people, and electronic, touch-free QR code contact tracing is available on any floors a person may visit.

The Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas is located at 1200 Ontario Street in Cleveland. Access to the court is currently limited to the Ontario Street entrance. Click here for more information from the court's website.
