Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is offering COVID-19 vaccine appointments to everyone age 16 and older beginning April 13. The Pennsylvania Department of Health announced expanded vaccine eligibility yesterday.
Beginning April 13, there will be three ways to schedule an appointment for any LVHN COVID-19 vaccination event, including drive-through clinics:
LVHN has prepared for expanded eligibility by opening new, larger vaccine clinics, hosting mass vaccination drive-throughs, and offering appointments at Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Pocono, LVH–Hazleton, and LVH–Schuylkill. With these expanded efforts, LVHN expects to deliver up to 36,000 doses per week.
In addition to these hospital locations, first-dose appointments also can be scheduled at clinics at the former A.C. Moore store, 2633 MacArthur Road, Whitehall, and at Northampton Crossings shopping center in the former Sears Appliance and Hardware store, 3768 Easton Nazareth Highway, Lower Nazareth Township. Both locations open today and will provide COVID-19 vaccinations by appointment only.
LVHN is committed to administering the vaccine as quickly as possible and will cover all costs. The LVHN plan for administering COVID-19 vaccines is determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s phased approach to vaccination.
