There’s only one way this pandemic ends: if enough people get the vaccine.
The vaccine shortages, priority tiers and confusing sign-up sites are all in the past. Now, everyone (ages 16 and up) is eligible, and can use Allegheny County’s vaccine provider map to find their shots at an abundance of places.
“Getting vaccinated means getting our lives back; it means spending time safely with loved ones and protecting yourself and others from this deadly virus,” says Dr. Debra Bogen, director of the Allegheny County Health Department. “I urge everyone to use this map today and get vaccinated.”
There are dozens of vaccination sites in all corners of the county, ranging from the Ross Community Center to the Walmart pharmacy in Natrona Heights, to the West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield. Clicking on a map location connects you to the sign-up portal for each.
You can sort the places on the map where walk-ins are accepted, or where phone scheduling is available. You can even sort locations by which vaccines are available: Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson.
For more about the vaccines — including lots of frequently asked questions — see the county’s COVID vaccine information page.
If you have an organization that is holding a vaccination event, or if you have a clinic that offers Covid vaccinations to the public, email VaccineDistribution@AlleghenyCounty.us for instructions about how to be added to the map.
According to the state’s Covid-19 Vaccine Dashboard, 229,113 residents of the county have been partially vaccinated and 369,153 have been fully vaccinated (as of Friday morning). Nearly 60% of residents have been partially vaccinated. It’s estimated that about a million county residents are eligible.
There are still appointments available at county vaccination clinics, which can be made online or calling 2-1-1.
Be sure to wear a mask when you go to get your shot.
“We are trying to make it as easy as possible for as many people as possible to get vaccinated, and this map will aid those efforts,” says Bogen.
