Penn Medicine strongly encourages everyone to get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines are everyone’s strongest defense against the virus. 

Currently, we are administering the vaccine at some Penn Medicine locations, but as COVID cases decline, we will begin to close our centralized vaccine clinics. We will continue to distribute vaccines at pop-up vaccine clinics within the community and at some primary care practices. 

The vaccine is available at pharmacies and other vaccine clinics throughout the area. To find a vaccination location near you, please visit Vaccines.gov.

If you would like more information about the vaccines, please contact your health care provider via myPennMedicine. If you would like to schedule a vaccine appointment, please call our COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling Hotline between 8 am and 5 pm, Monday through Friday, at 267-758-4902. Penn Medicine vaccine clinic locations are listed at the bottom of this page.
