This message was shared for the 2020-21 school year.


On February 8, I shared the first of a new series of COVID-19 vaccine distribution updates from the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH). Today, the DOH released their second edition and I have attached it to this email for your review.

The DOH recently launched a new vaccine eligibility tool called "Your Turn" to help Pennsylvanians understand where they fall in the vaccine prioritization effort and to be alerted when it is their turn to schedule an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine. Access more information on this tool via the DOH website.

Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam recently issued an order directing vaccine providers' administration of COVID-19 vaccines to ensure that Pennsylvanians are vaccinated as quickly and efficiently as possible. Governor Tom Wolf signed a concurrent order. Access more information on this announcement via the DOH website.

Lastly, I wanted to make you aware of a new PA HAN (PA Health Alert Network) communication from the DOH – it provides information, per the recent update from the CDC, on quarantine recommendations to reflect COVID-19 vaccination status. Access prior PA-HAN communications via the DOH website.

I will continue to share vaccine updates from the DOH as they are shared with me and my team.

Thank you,
