For people who don’t have internet access, a limited number of appointments can be booked by calling 1-877-288-2070 starting Monday at noon. But Giant Eagle says that’s not encouraged because high call volume and limited availability might create long wait times.READ MORE: Fatal Police Shooting In Ohio Hospital Caught On Officer Body Camera
