Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccination
Jefferson Health started a phased roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine for our most at-risk patients, above age 65. Due to the limited vaccines that are available, we are distributing this vaccine in the most equitable way and in accordance with Department of Health and CDC guidelines.
We understand that it may be a challenge to find an appointment. Even if you are eligible to receive a vaccine at this time, based on Department of Health guidance, we are limited by the vaccine supply we receive from the state. As we receive more vaccine, we will expand eligibility and our available appointments.
