COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

This page was created on August 16, 2021.

COVID-19 vaccinations provide the best protection against the virus.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. on August 16, 2021, an order by the Acting Secretary of Health directing vaccine providers to coordinate vaccine clinics with school entities and institutions of high education went into effect.

When requested to do so by any institution of higher education or school entity, vaccine providers are expected to make every effort to coordinate a vaccine clinic for the employees, contractors, volunteers, students, or students’ families of the school. The clinics can be held at the school or a location agreed upon by the school and vaccine provider. If a provider is unable to coordinate a vaccination clinic with the school, the provider is responsible for directing the school to the Pennsylvania Department of Health to be provided with contact information for other vaccine providers.

The United States Department of Education recommends schools use the We Can Do This On-Site Vaccination Clinic Toolkit for help working directly with vaccine providers to setup vaccination clinics. This toolkit provides a roadmap for community organizations, schools, employers and other groups—referenced here as “host organizations”—to work directly with vaccine providers to set up vaccination clinics in places people know and trust.
