COVID-19 Vaccine Information

On March 3, 2021 FEMA will begin operating a large vaccine clinic at the Philadelphia Convention Center.  The estimate is that the clinic will operate for 6 weeks and hopes to vaccinate 6,000 people per day.

This is not a walk up clinic and appointments are necessary and is for Philadelphia residents only.  The people who will be invited are those who have expressed interest in getting the vaccine by signing up on the website  It is the red banner that is about a 3rd of the way from the top.  They are both emailing those with internet and calling those who do not to invite them.  If folks don’t have internet access to sign up they can call 311 and they are able to register them from there.  We are also able to register people as well.

The city continues to run clinics, hospitals, pharmacy partners and local health centers are also vaccinating people.
