Pennsylvania hopes to get more shots in the arms of residents and government employees by making vaccines more accessible.

Governor Tom Wolf’s government will hold a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Harrisburg on August 31st which is open to the public.

“Vaccination gives us the power to fight COVID-19 and offers the best protection against the COVID-19 virus and its variants, including the highly transmissible Delta variant”, said incumbent Health Secretary Alison Beam. “This event, and other vaccination clinics in communities across the state, is an opportunity for you and your families to get vaccinated.” 9 am-4pm at the Riverfront Office Center, where PennDOT is located at 1101 S. Front St. , the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is given to adults aged 18 years and over. No registration is required.

The Pfizer vaccine is given to school-age children aged 12 and over. For this vaccine, second doses must be agreed with the state health department or other vaccine supplier.

“We hope that having a vaccination clinic in our facility will make it easier and more convenient for our employees, customers and community members in the Commonwealth to get vaccinated “, said PennDOT secretary Yassmin Gramian. “We hope that all employees and community members, and those who come to the ROC for services, take full advantage of this opportunity.”
