04/20/2021

I recently received both of my dozes of the #COVID19 vaccine so I am fully vaccinated against this virus. The vaccination process was quick and painless. I want to thank the medical professionals at The Fairmount Health Center, operated by Delaware Valley Community Health, Inc., for taking care of me.

I urge all Philadelphians to please get your #COVID19 vaccine shot as soon as possible.

The Philadelphia Health Department has announced that every Philadelphian over the age of 16 years old is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine (Phase 2).

If you're interested in getting vaccinated, complete the City’s Vaccine Interest Form (https://covid-vaccine-interest.phila.gov/?lang=en-US) or call 311 and you can get signed up over the telephone.
