As part of its ongoing community vaccination efforts to reach under-resourced communities, UPMC McKeesport
will host a community vaccine clinic to specifically administer first dose COVID-19 vaccines to community members in this group.
WHY: To see an end to the pandemic, a large percentage of the population needs to be immunized against COVID-19. UPMC is working to bridge the gap between the most vulnerable and vaccine access by proactively calling these people and connecting them with a vaccine appointment.
All clinics are by appointment only. Members of the community who qualify for vaccination now under the state Phase 1A criteria can register at vaccine.upmc.com
WHEN: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, March 16
** Media availability time 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
