COVID-19 Vaccines

In Pennsylvania, we are committed to giving a vaccine to every resident who wants one. While we ramp up our distribution efforts, we encourage all Pennsylvanians to have patience and to learn more about how to prepare yourself and your loved ones for the vaccine.

All Pennsylvania Adults are Eligible for the Vaccine

As of April 13, all PA adults 16 years and older are eligible to schedule an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine. To find a vaccine provider near you, go to the PA Department of Health’s Vaccine Provider Map to schedule your appointment.  Philadelphia County residents should visit the City of Philadelphia COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution webpage for their separate vaccine rollout plan.

It’s a big task, but we will deliver a vaccine to every Pennsylvanian who wants it.

Vaccine Safety

Your health is important. And we know you have questions about COVID-19 vaccines and whether they are safe for you and your family. That’s why we have pulled together valuable information about the currently authorized COVID-19 vaccines. On our Vaccine Safety & Effectiveness webpage, you’ll find details about:

  • FDA-approved vaccines
  • potential side effects
  • and vaccine safety monitoring

For more details about all the steps that go into making sure vaccines are safe – including details about how clinical trials work – check out the CDC’s overview about Ensuring the Safety of Vaccines.

Be sure to stay in the know with all of the frequently asked questions surrounding vaccines by visiting our Get Answers to Your Questions webpage.

Stop the Spread

While the vaccine is the best way to protect you from COVID-19, it isn’t a cure for the virus. We must stay vigilant. Please continue to wear a mask, keep your distance, wash your hands, download and use the COVID Alert PA app, and answer the call from contact tracers.

For more information about what you can do to continue to protect yourself, your family, business, neighbors, and community check out the information under our Stop the Spread webpage.
