Vaccines are safe and effective and the best way to protect you and those around you from serious illnesses. The COVID-19 vaccine will be distributed to Pennsylvanians in a phased approach. [Pennsylvania Department of Health Website] PA DOH.
For anyone located close to a UPMC facility in Pennsylvania, please read and follow the directions below to submit a request to be vaccinated.
Under Pennsylvania's Phase 1a, people over 65 and people age 16-64 with medical conditions that put them at risk of COVID-19 complications are eligible for the vaccine.
With limited vaccine supply, UPMC has been focused on those most severely affected by the pandemic. This includes the oldest members of our communities and people who have limited access to medical care and services. This is an important step in reducing hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 and bringing the pandemic under control. We also are focused on partnering with community organizations to reach those with limited access to technology like computers, smartphones, and the internet.
UPMC continues to provide thousands of vaccines each week to frontline health care workers who are not associated with UPMC or another hospital or health system. This includes dentists, orthodontists, home health care workers, mental health professionals, and many more. And vaccines for community members are currently taking place at more than 20 UPMC clinics across the state.
