Vials of the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines

On April 19, Pennsylvania will open COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to anyone 16 or older, as the pace of vaccinations increases – an average of 83,000 Pennsylvanians are being vaccinated each day.

The accelerated phased roll-out schedule is as follows:

March 31: Law enforcement, firefighters, grocery store workers, food and agriculture workers became eligible for the vaccine.

April 5: All residents in Phase 1B, which includes postal, public transit and manufacturing employees, will be eligible to start scheduling vaccination appointments.

April 12: All residents in Phase 1C, which includes workers in transportation and logistics, water and wastewater, public health, finance and construction, can start scheduling vaccination appointments.

April 19: All residents 16 and older can start scheduling vaccination appointments.

Pennsylvania currently has no statewide vaccine sign-up system. Those in Fayette County, however, can use the county’s registry at fayettecountypa.org to sign up for an appointment. The county is working with WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital, Highlands Hospital and partner pharmacies to offer vaccines around the county.

The state Department of Health has made available a list of vaccine providers at https://padoh.maps.arcgis.com.

For residents in Fayette, Greene and Washington counties who are seeking to find an appointment, here are some options. Keep in mind, eligibility does not guarantee a vaccination appointment will be scheduled immediately.
