Pediatric Vaccinations
Now that the FDA has approved pediatric COVID-19 vaccines for 5-11 year olds, appointments can be scheduled at gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov. Vaccine appointments can also be scheduled through MyChart, the Cleveland Clinic’s online healthcare portal. UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital is offering pediatric vaccines through a child’s primary care pediatrician if they’re already a UH patient. UH is also hosting vaccination clinics for children who aren’t UH patients; call 216-508-0333 to schedule an appointment.

With more than 135 acres of parks in Cleveland Heights, the newly formed Friends of Heights Parks (FHP) is interested in finding out what people want and need from their Heights local parks. FHP is hosting a “Walk in Forest Hill Park” at 11am on Saturday, November 13 with local landscape designer and activist Elsa Johnson. Those interested in participating should meet at the Forest Hill Pavillion by the 11am starting time. For more information about the November 13 walk or FHP, send an email to friendsofheightsparks@gmail.com.
Easily Recycle Campaign Signs
In order to divert waste from the landfill and promote reusing, upcycling, and recycling, the Cleveland Heights Green Team, in partnership with the Cuyahoga Solid Waste District, are collecting campaign signs through November 14. Clearly marked drop boxes are located at the front of the following collections points: Dave’s Cedar-Fairmount, Dave’s Severance, Zagara’s on Lee Road, Heights Library Coventry Branch, and Save-A-Lot on Noble Road. If residents are unable to reach any of the collection points, please email greenteam@chgreenteam.org and the signs will be picked up. Signs can also be dropped off at the City’s Service Garage on Superior Road. Place your signs in the box next to the front door.
Deadline to File for Child Tax Credit is November 15
The Child Tax Credit in the American Rescue Plan provides the largest child tax credit and, as of July 15, most working families have been automatically receiving monthly payments of $250 or $300 per child without needing to take any action. The Children’s Defense Fund reports that if you haven’t been automatically receiving these monthly payments, the deadline to sign up is November 15. And those who are eligible for the credit but don’t sign up by the deadline will still be able to claim the full credit of $3600 per child by filing your taxes next year.
Blood Drive on November 16
The current blood supply is the lowest the Red Cross has reported this time of year in more than a decade. At least 10,000 donations are needed per week for the next several weeks to meet demand across the U.S. The next Blood Drive is November 16 from 12 noon to 6pm at Church of The Saviour (2537 Lee Road). Visit their website to register or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
