Vaccinate PA

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WHTM) — The United States Assistant Secretary for Health, Dr. Rachel Levine, toured vaccination sites in Philadelphia on Thursday.

The former Pa. Secretary of Health visited the FEMA-run clinic at the Pennsylvania Convention Center as pharmacists and clinic staff worked to get 900 doses — set to expire Thursday afternoon — into arms.

Dr. Levine touted the progress the U.S. has made in the fight against COVID during her visit.

“More than half of the United States adults have gotten one shot [and] two-thirds of seniors are fully vaccinated,” Dr. Levine said.

In the commonwealth, more than 3.3 million people are fully vaccinated, which is more than 31% of the population.
