Getting the COVID Vaccine

Updated May 7, 2021

More than 3 million Pennsylvanians are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and our vaccine supply increases each week — getting more and more shots into arms.

All adult Pennsylvanians are eligible to be vaccinated. Experts are working on approving vaccines for children younger than 16.

Use this guide to find out how to get a vaccine. If you have questions about the vaccination process in Pennsylvania, please call the Pennsylvania Department of Health hotline at 1-877-724-3258.

Who Is Eligible?

All Pennsylvania adults are now eligible to be vaccinated.

Step 1: Find a Vaccine Provider

Click “Find a Vaccine” below to find a place to schedule your vaccine.

Vaccine providers include hospitals, urgent care centers, doctor’s offices, and pharmacies. Providers have to be registered to receive the vaccine — so make sure your chosen provider is listed before continuing to Step 3.

PHILLY RESIDENTS: The city has its own vaccination plan. Go here for vaccine information and to find a vaccine near you.

Veterans, their spouses, and caregivers also are eligible to receive vaccine through Veterans Affairs. Visit the VA website for more information.

Step 2: Contact A Provider To Schedule An Appointment

Contact the vaccine provider of your choice directly from the map above to schedule an appointment for your vaccine.

When you get the vaccine, you and the person administering the vaccine will both need to wear masks that cover your nose and mouth.

You will receive a vaccination card that tells you which COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. The card also will remind you to return for a second dose if needed.

Learn more about how to prepare for your vaccine.

Step 3: Be Sure to Get Both Doses

The Moderna and Pfizer COVID vaccines are administered in two doses. You will have to return to your vaccination provider to get the second dose of the vaccine before you are done being vaccinated.

If your received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you are fully protected after one dose.
