Updated May 4, 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

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

Vaccine providers can 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 on our map before continuing to Step 3.

Use the Your Turn tool to sign up for updates and information about the vaccine from the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Note: This tool works best in Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is working to ensure all enrolled vaccine providers have information publicly available for those currently eligible to be vaccinated. This map will be updated as more locations receive vaccine. Click on a location to see details on vaccination locations.

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.

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.
