The Montgomery County Office of Public Health is required to follow the Pennsylvania Department of Health's plan for vaccine prioritization for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The goal is for everyone to be able to easily get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as large quantities are available. At this time, vaccine supply remains extremely limited.
The City of Philadelphia receives their vaccine from the Federal Government directly and is not required to follow the Pennsylvania Department of Health's vaccine prioritization plans.
Pennsylvania has officially opened COVID-19 vaccination to everyone over 65 and people 16-64 with chronic illnesses.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has the latest COVID-19 Vaccine Information on their website. This information can be found here: HTTPS://WWW.HEALTH.PA.GOV/TOPICS/DISEASE/CORONAVIRUS/VACCINE/PAGES/VACCINE.ASPX
People not in this group can complete a “Vaccine Interest Survey” on the Health Department website: montcopa.org/3660/COVID-19-Vaccine.
Completing the survey assures that you will be notified by the health department when the vaccine is available for 1B. With that email, you will also receive information about locations and how to schedule a vaccine appointment.
At this time, it is not known when physician offices might receive the vaccine. If you have the opportunity to receive the vaccine through the health department, take it.
We will continue to keep you updated. We are here for you and your family!
