YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — Governor Wolf visited York’s Family First Health Thursday to discuss the progress the state has made with the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Pennsylvania’s federally qualified health centers are crucial community partners focused on community-based care that serves some of the most vulnerable communities in the commonwealth,” Gov. Wolf said. “The community connections that federally qualified health centers such as Family First Health build and the equity-based care they provide make them an important part of our efforts to administer an efficient, ethical, and equitable vaccine rollout.”
Family First Health will be offering all-day Friday vaccination clinics beginning Friday, March 12. Center President and CEO Jenny Englerth described how Family First Health has made it a goal to vaccinate more patients each month.
To date, Pennsylvania has administered more than three million doses of COVID-19 vaccine and is working through the priority population in Phase 1A as quickly as possible. More than one million Pennsylvanians are now fully vaccinated.
“As we learn more, we change our processes to better serve Pennsylvanians and as we receive more vaccine, we have the resources to expand the rollout and give Pennsylvanians new vaccination opportunities,” said Wolf.
