Across the commonwealth, Pennsylvania’s hospitals are here to help you get vaccinated.
Today, Governor Wolf announced that 70 percent of Pennsylvania adults have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and the work continues to ensure every eligible Pennsylvanian receives this life-saving vaccine. Since December, Pennsylvania’s hospitals have administered more than three million COVID-19 vaccines and are proud to play an integral role in this effort to end the pandemic.
HAP and Pennsylvania’s hospital community encourage everyone to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, but we know people may have questions about what to expect. During a recent tour of the Allegheny Health Network’s COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Monroeville, leaders from the health system offered a look inside their facility and the vaccination process from start to finish.
If you haven’t received your COVID-19 vaccine and have questions, here are a few key things to know:
HAP continues to encourage people to sign up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Pennsylvania’s dedicated health care workforce is focused on providing education and administering the vaccine to everyone who is eligible.
Getting the vaccine helps protect you, your family, and the people you love in your community, and it marks an important step to help end the pandemic. If you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, don’t hesitate to reach out to your health care provider to address any concerns you may have.
