The state health department has created a map that lists COVID-19 vaccine providers across Pennsylvania. Providers who currently offer vaccines and those that eventually will as the state’s roll out enters its later stages are included.

Currently, hospitals and federal qualified health centers are administering the COVID-19 vaccine. But according to the map, pharmacies across the commonwealth will eventually receive vaccine shipments.

The map could help Pennsylvania’s non-hospital workers included under Phase 1A of the state’s distribution plan. Many dentists, home health aides and contractors have reported frustration and confusion trying to find a local vaccine provider.

By zooming in, users can select a provider’s pin to bring up a window that lists a contact person, phone number, email and other information. Previously, the state had issued a spreadsheet of provider names but no contact information.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health's vaccine map includes details about providers currently distributing the vaccine and those planning to do so.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health’s vaccine map includes details about providers currently distributing the vaccine (green pins) and those planning to do so (red pins).

Some provider windows have blank fields while others are more complete. For example, Lehigh Valley Hospital Schuylkill lists hours of operation as well as a contact person, email address, phone number and website. By comparison, the Surgical Institute of Reading only specifies that it received 300 vaccinations and plans to administer them to employees and “other neighboring healthcare facilities.”

A spokesperson for the health department said information will be regularly updated and as new providers enroll, they can input their own information.

State Health Department Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said Monday that the state is focused on vaccinating all health care workers under Phase 1A, but could soon expand vaccine distribution to Phase 1B which includes essential workers outside of the health care sector.

The map and more details about COVID-19 vaccine providers can be found at the Pennsylvania Health Department’s website.
