Community Immunity Bus is Beach Bound July 11 for Cleveland Drug Court's Yoga on the Beach

Jul 5, 2022

Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) Community Immunity Bus is Beach-Bound July 11 for Cleveland Drug Court’s Yoga on the Beach. 

GCRTA will collaborate with the Cleveland Department of Public Health (CDPH) to provide free onsite COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots at the Greater Cleveland Drug Court’s annual Yoga on the Beach event on Monday, July 11, 2022, 11:00AM to 1:00PM.

Those interested in COVID-19 vaccination, may walk-up to the GCRTA Community Immunity  Bus, which will be parked near the beach house at Edgewater Park Centennial Plaza, 7600  Cleveland Memorial Shoreway, Cleveland, OH 44102. Pre-registration is optional at or by calling 216-664-2222.

This is the second annual Yoga on the Beach event hosted by the Cleveland Drug Court. “We  are excited to bring the Community Immunity Bus back for the 2nd installment of Yoga on the  Beach,” said Natoya Walker-Minor, Deputy General Manager of External Affairs and  Administration. “This joint venture builds on last year’s success and provides a safe and  convenient option not only for those starting the vaccination process, but also those seeking to  boost their protection.”

CDPH medical staff will provide the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine and  boosters to adults and children, ages 5 and up, at no charge aboard the GCRTA Community  Immunity Bus. Anyone younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in  order to receive the vaccine.

“Events such as these, that promote wellness, are at the core of public health,” said CDPH  Director Brian Kimball. “Similar to how yoga can increase your strength, vaccination trains your  body to withstand disease and helps to prevent the serious short and long-term consequences  that can come from COVID-19 infection.”

The RTA Community Immunity Bus is made possible by ODOT funding in effort to make the  COVID-19 vaccine accessible to multiple communities in the greater Cleveland area.
