HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Department of Health Senior Advisor for COVID-19 Response Lindsey Mauldin held a virtual media briefing Friday to provide a COVID-19 vaccine update in Pennsylvania. 

She announced that more than 1.5 million Pennsylvanian’s have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The DOH also announced Friday that they are updating their quarantine guidelines to no longer require a fully-vaccinated individual to quarantine when coming in contact with someone who has COVID-19.

Mauldin held a question and answer session after the briefing, in which she announced that due to limited vaccine quantities, weather delays, and other factors, the DOH is suggesting that Phase 1B may not begin until the summer.
